This section uses the
while repetition statement to formalize the elements required to perform counter-controlled repetition. Counter-controlled repetition requires
1. a control variable (or loop counter)
2. the initial value of the control variable
3. the increment (or decrement) by which the control variable is modified each time through the loop (also known as each iteration of the loop)
4. the loop-continuation condition that determines whether to continue looping.
To see these elements of counter-controlled repetition, consider the app of Fig. 6.1, which uses a loop to display the numbers from 1 through 10.
