A loop is a sequence of instruction s that is continually repeated until a certain condition is reached. Typically, a certain process is done, such as getting an item of data and changing it, and then some condition is checked such as whether a counter has reached a prescribed number. In the Blogger Language , a loop is implemented using the tag <b:loop>. Most commonly used for printing out each post in a list of posts for a given page, or each comment, or each label, etc.
