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.
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.
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.
