Explanation

Template:sparam shall be an expression, whose result is convertible to bool. It is evaluated before each execution of Template:sparam, which is only executed if the Template:sparam evaluates to true.

If the execution of the loop needs to be terminated at some point, break statement can be used as terminating statement.

If the execution of the loop needs to be continued at the end of the loop body, continue statement can be used as shortcut.
