DTML Basics (part 3)
Twist and turn with DTML's loops.

| A Twist In The Tail |

If you've been following along, you now know how to incorporate decision-making constructs in your DTML code. As you saw in last week's episode, DTML comes with a fairly large family of conditional statements, which allow you to add business intelligence to your DTML scripts.

But DTML is a full-fledged programming language, and one which allows you to do a lot more than nest "if" statements within each other. One of its cooler capabilities involves using powerful loop constructs to iterate over sequences of both variables and objects.
