in reply to Re: do while loops
in thread do while loops

do{ ... } while $foo; isn't a loop, it's a block with a postfixed while, so you need to label it to re-do it.

@_=qw; ask f00li5h to appear and remain for a moment of pretend better than a lifetime;;s;;@_[map hex,split'',B204316D8C2A4516DE];;y/05/os/&print;

    sum = 0; for (x = 1; x <= 5; x++) { printf("%d", x); sum = sum + x; printf("The sum is %d", sum); }

      for(;;) loops are ick... they tend to lead to unneeded subscripting and other pesky things

      for my $x (1..4) is far less intent-obfuscated-by-code looking (as far as i see it anyway)

      wait, is that C?
