A repetition statement in C++ is a control statement that allows you to execute a block of code repeatedly until a certain condition is met. There are three types of repetition statements in C++:
- while loop: The while loop executes a block of code repeatedly while a condition is true.
- do-while loop: The do-while loop executes a block of code at least once, and then it evaluates a condition. If the condition is true, the code block is executed again.
- for loop: The for loop executes a block of code a fixed number of times.
Repetition statements are a powerful tool for controlling the flow of your C++ program. They can be used to solve a variety of problems, such as:
- Iterating over a collection of data
- Performing a task a certain number of times
- Waiting for a certain event to occur
