Purpose : Performs a group of one or more high speed calculations as many times as required.
LOOP BEGIN number
. . . . .
Notes: The LOOP statement allows the execution of groups of one or more mathematical statements in a repetitive manner. The total number of groups to be executed is specified by number value. number may be a constant or a variable name. Only mathematical calculations IF...ENDIF statements and memory operations are executed within a LOOP . After the last loop is executed program flow is continued on the next script line after the appropriate LOOP END statement. LOOP BEGIN...END statements may be nested. Ensure that the proper combination of LOOP BEGIN...END statements exists. Failure to do so may produce unpredictable results. Use the LOOP BREAK statement to break out one level of looping.
# A Number to the nth
input number " Enter a number: "
input power " Enter the power: "
accum = 1
loop begin power
accum = accum * number
print number " to the
power of " power " = " accum
