Repeat Control Statement
repeat for <number> times end repeat
The repeat for control statement causes the block of Oracle Media Talk statements between its first and last lines to execute <number> times, unless an exit, exit to top, exit repeat, or pass statement is encountered.
The next repeat control statement causes the code to jump immediately to the beginning of the repeat loop, incrementing the loop counter.
The following script, when placed in a button, prompts the user to enter five numbers, which are summed and returned:
put 0 into total repeat for 5 times
ask "Please enter a number..."
put total + it into total end repeat
