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

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

      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.
