The repeat Statement


The repeat loop has the following form:

repeat statement

where:

Repeat executes forever or until a break or return is made. The statement or block of statements is repeatedly executed. When execution is interrupted, it is resumed at the statement after the repeat loop.

This program calculates the primes less than 100.

// primes - calculates the primes less than +eh

generic primes
{
    primes()
    {
        i = +c
        repeat
        {
            is_prime = true

            g = +c
            limit = i / +c

            repeat
            {
                if g == limit+1 break
                if i % g == +a {is_prime = false break}
                g++
            }

            if is_prime
            {
               
                 s = i.to_string() + " is prime"
                 s.println()
            }

            i++

            if i == +eh break
        }
    }
}
