Python Programming Tutorials: For Loops


Here's a great teaser from one of our Python programming classes on For Loops. describes Python loops in a very basic way, which we've summed up below:

As you program in Python, there may be a scenario where you need to execute a block of code several different times. Generally, statements are executed sequentially. The first statement in a function is executed first, followed by the second and so on.

In Python there are control structures that allow for more complicated execution paths. A loop statement allows us to execute a statement or group of statements multiple times.

For loops specifically execute a sequence of statements multiple times and abbreviates the code that manages the loop variable.
