While Loop

Often, in programming, you want your code to run repeatedly as long as a specific condition is true. Think about how, in everyday life, we stay on a subway train until we reach our designated stop. If our destination is "Station B," we'll pass by "Station A," "Station C," and so forth until we arrive at "Station B." In Python, you can simulate this behavior with a while loop, structured like this:

For instance, we can use this loop to print all numbers up to 10.

Using loops in programming significantly simplifies code by reducing repetition. This is crucial because less code generally means fewer errors and makes it easier to manage and update the code if necessary.

The loop's logic is outlined above. You might observe that we've included i = i + 1 within the loop. Without this line, our loop would run indefinitely because each time the condition is checked, it would find 1 < 10, which is always True. So, when working with while loops, it's crucial to ensure your code doesn't enter an endless loop.
