Looping statements in c

Advantages of using loop in c.

Types of loops

What is difference between while loop and do while loop?

This tutorial covers the concepts of looping statements in c with example. Advantages of using loops have been explained in this tutorial. This tutorial also covers the types of loop such as for loop in c programming with example, while loop in c programming and do- while loop in c programming.

(A) What is loop in c?

When we write a program to solve any problem then sometime we face a situation when a some statements in code needs to be executed more than one time or fixed number of times.
In general when statements are executed in sequential order then at first, first statement is executed then second , then third and  so on.  
C Programming languages provides us the facility of various looping statements in c.
A loop statement provides us the facility to execute a statement or set of statements multiple times or fixed number of time based on the limit and condition given by programmer in code. One major advantage of using looping statements in c is that there is no need to write same statement or code of statements again and again.

for loop in c with example

In the next section of this c programming tutorial we will discuss about different types of loop in c.

(B) Types of loop


There are following types of loop in c programming language

1. For loop in c programming

The general syntax of for loop in c programming is as follows:-

for (initialization; condition section; increment /decrement section)
{
    //block of statements ;  
 }


  • In the initialization section we have to initialize the variables with some value.
  • In the condition section – In this section we give a limit or condition which decides whether the loop will continue or not. While this condition is true the loop will continue running.
  •  In the increment/decrement section we have to either increment the value or decrement the value based on our requirement.      

Example: To print number form 1 to 10 using for loop.

#include
#include

Void main()
{
    for(int i=1;i<=10;i++)
   {
     printf(“\n%d”,i);
   }
    getch();
}

2.While Loop

The general syntax of while loop is as follows:-

 While( condition)
{      
      //block of statements;

  }

In while loop at first it will check the given condition, if the given condition is true then the statements are executed and these statements are executed till the given Condition is true when the given condition is false then loop is automatically terminated.

Example : Program to print number form 1 to 10 using while loop.

#include
#include

Void main()
{
    int i=1;
   While(i<=10)

   {
      printf(“\n%d”, i);
      i++;
  }
getch();
}

3. Do - While Loop

 The general syntax of do while loop is as follows:-
   

do
        ;
 } while(condition) ;

The execution of the above code is as follows:- Firstly the statement are executed are executed and then if will check the given condition and the statement are executed till the given condition is and when the Given condition is false then loop is automatically terminated.

Example : To program to print number from 1 to 10 using do while loop.

#include
#include

void main()
{

   int i=1;
   do
   {
        printf(“\n%d”, i);
        i++;
         
        } while (i<=10);
     getch();
}   

(C) Difference between while and do while loop 

The difference between while and do while loop is that in while loop, firstly condition is checked and if the condition is true then statement are executed and the condition is false the loop is Automatically terminated, but in do while loop firstly the the statement are executed and then it will check the given condition i.e. the do while loop is executed at least once.

I hope that this tutorial will be helpful to students in understanding the looping statements in c programming, types of loop .
