# REPEAT Loops

A repeat loop performs the test condition at the end of every loop and will execute at least one loop.

Note: Use a break statement to terminate a repeat loop before the end condition is satisfied.
m = 0
repeat
m = m+1
print("Repeat loops check the condition at end, and stops if it is true.")
print("The value of m is " .. m)
if (math.random()*10 > 5) then
print("A random number larger than 5 was generated. Terminating the loop early.")
break -- breaks out of the loop early
end
until m == 5
