"do ... while" Statements
This section describes how 'do ... while' statements works in PHP. One or more statements are repeatedly executed as long as the specified condition is true.
PHP also supports a variation of the "while" statement called "do ... while" statement.
with 2 forms:
1. Single-statement "do ... while":
do statement while (condition);
2. Multi-statement "do ... while":
} while (condition);
All forms of "do ... while" statements are executed like this:
Step 1: Execute the statement or statements enclosed in the loop.
Step 2: Evaluate "condition" as a Boolean value.
Step 3: If "condition" returns TRUE, continue with Step 1.
Step 4: If "condition" returns "FALSE", terminate the loop.
Of course, you can use the "break" statement inside the loop to terminate the loop immediately.
I will leave it to you to write some sample scripts for "do ... while" statements as exercises.
