Syntax

while ( cond_expression ) loop_statement

Explanation

cond_expression shall be an expression, whose result is convertible to bool. It is evaluated before each execution of loop_statement, which is only executed if the cond_expression 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.
