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

Couldn't $value = $value - 1; be written like this?:

$value -= 1; # or $value-- ; # since its just -1

    Yeah, they could.
    I think this example is trying to limit itself to the syntax of the do/while loop, though. So it can be fully understood on its own. Using the 'minimalist' decrement operators might distract someone new to the language.
