Pascal is a high-level programming language that was designed to encourage good programming practices and provide a structured approach to programming. It was named after the mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal. Pascal is known for its simplicity, readability, and strong typing system. It is widely used in education and is often used as an introductory language for teaching programming concepts.
In Pascal, the repeat statement is used to create a loop that repeats a block of code until a certain condition is met. The basic syntax of the repeat statement in Pascal is as follows:
// code to be repeated
The code inside the repeat block will be executed repeatedly until the condition specified after the until keyword is true. The condition is checked at the end of each iteration, so the code inside the repeat block will always be executed at least once.
Here's an example of how the repeat statement can be used in Pascal:
i := 1;
writeln('Count: ', i);
i := i + 1;
until i > 5;
In this example, the program will output the numbers from 1 to 5 by repeatedly executing the code inside the repeat block until the value of
i becomes greater than 5.
