A while loop statement in C programming language repeatedly executes a target statement as long as a given condition is true.

The syntax of a while loop in C programming language is:


Here, statement(s) may be a single statement or a block of statements. The condition may be any expression, and true is any nonzero value. The loop iterates while the condition is true.

When the condition becomes false, program control passes to the line immediately following the loop.


Flow Diagram


#include <stdio.h>
int main ()
   /* local variable definition */
   int a = 10;

   /* while loop execution */
   while( a < 20 )
      printf("value of a: %d\n", a);
   return 0;

When the above code is compiled and executed, it produces the following result:

value of a: 10
value of a: 11
value of a: 12
value of a: 13
value of a: 14
value of a: 15
value of a: 16
value of a: 17
value of a: 18
value of a: 19
