Description

The expression of a while clause shall be a scalar Boolean expression. The while-clause corresponds to while-statements in programming languages, and is formally defined as follows

  1. The expression of the while clause is evaluated.
  2. If the expression of the while-clause is false, the execution continues after the while-clause.
  3. If the expression of the while-clause is true, the entire body of the while clause is executed (except if a break statement or return statement is executed), and then execution proceeds at step 1.
