While Loop in PHP

While Loop in PHP

While loop executes a block of statements as long as the condition that is defined is true.

In the example below, we have set a variable $x to 1.The while loop will continue to run as long as the value of $x  is less than or equal to 10. Variable “$x” is increment by 1 each time the loop runs $x++.

 {While loop opening tag.
                 echo “The value is :$x<br>”;Code within Loop . Prints the message.
                 $x++;Value of variable $x is increment by 1.
