Looping and Iteration« « Decision Making| Functions » »
Looping & Iteration statements are used to execute the block of code repeatedly for a specified number of times or until it meets a specified condition. In C Programming Language we have following loop types.
The for loop statement
The for loop is used when we want to execute block of code known times.
|initialization||Sets a counter variable|
|condition||It test the each loop iteration for a condition. If it returns TRUE, the loop continues. If it returns FALSE, the loop ends.|
|increment||Increment counter variable|
The while loop statement
The while loop will execute a block of statement as long as a test expression is true.
The do…while loop statement
The do…while statement will execute a block of code and then test the condition for next iteration and executes next only if condition is true, block of code executes at least once.
