in thread do while loops

Actually, I think the problem is larger than that.
shouldn't it be:
$value = 15; # 15, not 5. 5 doesn't make sense if we're not increment +ing. do { print "$value\n"; $value = $value - 1; } while($value > 10);

jdporter fixed formatting

    The point was that the test happens at the end, so the loop executes once even if the value starts out < 10.
