Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Loops, part of Learning C++.
…When testing the programs we've written so far, we had…to build and run the program, each time with different values.…It's not hard when we only have a few test cases.…But what happens when we want to test 100 values or maybe even 1,000?…Or maybe we don't even know how many times we need to run the program?…Fortunately, we have several ways to repeat a block of code.…C++ has three types of loops.…The first is a do, some block of code, while some condition is true.…Note that this particular type of loop always executes at least once.…
The while loop is set up to repeat as long as a conditional statement is true.…And the for loop executes for a predetermined number of times.…Let's start out with a while example.…While some condition is true.…If we took out a simple loan of $5000, how many months…would it take to pay it back if we paid $500 per month?…Well here's a flowchart of the process.…The very top box is the decision box.…It says is the balance greater zero?…If the result of that test is true, it will add one to…
