Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video Looping with while, part of Learning C (2014).
- Another way that program flow can be altered…is when one or more statements are repeated over and over.…This process is referred to as a loop.…The C language offers several ways of looping.…In this movie, I present the 'while' type of loop.…You'll learn how to set up the loop,…determine when to stop looping,…and how to break out of a loop before it's done.…A loop is a repetitive way to control program execution.…You must specify a condition that makes the loop repeat,…a set of statements that repeat,…and a way for the loop to stop.…
In this code, a 'while' loop counts from one to 10.…The looping condition is specified on line eight.…It reads that, while the value of variable x…is less than or equal to 10,…as long as that condition is true,…the statements in the loop between the curly brackets…at line nine and 12 will repeat.…The value of x is initialized at line seven.…
At line 11, the value of variable x is incremented.…So, as long as x keeps inching up, the loop repeats…until x is greater than 10.…Build and run this code.…
