for(initialization; condition; end_action) {

code

}

* initialization - used to initialize variables (usually something like i = 0)

* condition - boolean expression; loop continues while expression is met

* end_action - action to perform at the end of the loop (usually something like i++)

* code - code to repeat Note that any of the above sections can be empty:

for(;;){}

This is a valid code block which will do nothing and never finish.
