Else Clauses on Loops

aswin2001barath profile image Aswin Barath ・1 min read

Did you know that loop statements may have an else clause?
Well, it turns out that they can be used!

  • else clause will be executed when the loop completes through all of the iterations with for loop and when the condition becomes false with while loop.

Example:
Alt Text

Output:

Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Treasure not found :(
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • But else clause will not be executed when the loop is terminated by a break statement.

Example:
Alt Text

Output:

Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Searching...
Found the treasure
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Code along and have fun.
