A loop statement allow us to execute a statement or group of statements multiple times.
MATLAB provides different types of loops to handle looping requirements, including while loops, for loops, and nested loops. If we are trying to declare or write our own loops, we need to make sure that the loops are written as scripts and not directly in the Command Window.
Two additional command, break and continue, can be used to create a third type of loop, known as midpoint break loop. Midpoint break loop is useful for situations where the commands in the loop must be executed at least once, but where the decision to exit the loop is based on some criterion.
Types of Loops
There are two types of loop in MATLAB.
A for loop is used to repeat a statement or a group of statements for a fixed number of times.
A while loop is used to execute a statement or a group of statements for an indefinite number of times until the conditional specified by while is no longer satisfied.
