The While Loop Operator
Evaluates y while x is nonzero (true). The condition expression is evaluated at the beginning of the while loop, so the loop may never execute. The loop stops iterating as soon as the condition is false and it returns the last value calculated in its body on the previous iteration.
x is any valid expression or sequence of expressions that can evaluate to 0, frequently a Boolean expression.
y is any valid expression or sequence of expressions. At least one expression in the loop body must change the condition expression, x, so that it becomes false. Otherwise, the loop executes indefinitely.
