Counting[edit]

# This program demonstrates While, Do, and For loop counting using
# user-designated start, stop, and increment values.

Output[edit]

Enter starting value:
1
Enter ending value:
3
Enter increment value:
1
While loop counting from 1 to 3 by 1:
1
2
3
Do loop counting from 1 to 3 by 1:
1
2
3
For loop counting from 1 to 3 by 1:
1
2
3
