The While Loop Else Clause
This lesson covers the
while-loop-else-clause, which is unique to Python. The
else-block is only executed if the
while-loop is exhausted. You don’t know what that means? Check out this lesson to find out! Furthermore, you can find two examples below, which you can copy-paste and run to get a sense of what’s happening.
n = 5 while n > 0: n = n - 1 if n == 2: break print(n) else: print("Loop is finished")
n = 5 while n > 0: n = n - 1 if n == 2: continue print(n) else: print("Loop is finished")
