Endless loop

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Alternatively known as an infinite loop or a continuous loop, an endless loop is a continuous repetition of a program segment. For example, when creating a batch file, an endless loop can be created using the GOTO statement that refers back to the beginning of the loop.

Echo I am an endless loop!

As illustrated in the above example, the program prints "I am an endless loop!" and then go back to the BEGIN statement and repeat this process indefinitely.
