While loops repetitively execute a block of code as long as a specified condition is true. It provides a way to automate repetitive tasks and perform iterations based on the condition's evaluation.

while (condition) {
  // do it as long as condition is true

For example, the loop in this example will repetitively execute its block of code as long as the variable i is less than 5:

var i = 0,
x = "";
while (i < 5) {
  x = x + "The number is " + i;

Be careful to avoid infinite looping if the condition is always true!
