Python: while loop

The while loop is similar to an ifstatement: it executes the code inside of it if some condition is true. The difference is that the while loop will continue to execute as long as the condition is true. In other words, instead of executing if something is true, it executes while that thing is true.

BEWARE OF INFINITE LOOPS!
 

count = 0

if count < 5:

print “Hello, I am an if statement and count is”, count

while count < 10:

print “Hello, I am a while and count is”, count

count += 1

Hopefully the indentation is displayed correctly in your view of this post. The lines under **if** and **while** should be indented.
