Rust Loops

In the Rust programming language, loops are used to repeatedly iterate over a block of code. Loops iterate, i.e., ‘loop’ until a specified condition is reached.

There are a few types of loops in Rust:

Each type of loop is designed for a different purpose, facilitating control flow in different ways.

Definite and Indefinite Loops

Loops can be divided into two types: definite and indefinite.

Definite Loops

A definite loop is a loop with a known number of iterations at compile time. It will only loop for a pre-determined number of times, and will stop.

The for loop is a definite loop.

Indefinite Loops

An indefinite loop has an unknown number of iterations at compile time. It will loop an undetermined number of times, until a condition is met.

The loop and while loops are indefinite.
