Overview

A "while" loop performs a set of commands for each iteration of the loop.

Usage

while (condition)

Examples

   int i;
   
   i = 0;    
   
   while( i < 10 ) {
       
       printf("This is a test. Loop %s\n", i) ;
       
       i = i + 1;
       
   } ;

This example will iterate the loop, printing the "This is a test. Loop n" message 9 times.
