C.17. do...while Repetition Statement

The do...while repetition statement is similar to the while statement. In the while, the program tests the loop-continuation condition at the beginning of the loop, before executing the loop’s body; if the condition is false, the body never executes. The do...while statement tests the loop-continuation condition after executing the loop’s body; therefore, the body always executes at least once. When a do...while statement terminates, execution continues with the next statement in sequence. Figure C.16 uses a do...while (lines 10–14) to output the numbers 1–10.
