Programming With C : Nested Loops and Jumping Statements- Lecture4

As we discussed in our last chapter

Loops, like if-else statements, can be nested, one within another.

While, the inner and outer loops need not be generated by the same type of control structure.

It is essential,  that one loop be completely embedded within the other  – there can be no overlap.

Therefore, Each loop must be controlled by different index.

Moreover, nested control structure can involve both loops and if-else statement.

Thus, a loop can be nested within an if-else statement, and an if-else statement can be nested within a loop.

Hence, the nested structure may be complex as necessary, as determined by the program logic.


#include <stdio.h>

void main()

{ int i,j;

for (i=1; i<=10; i++)

       for(j=1; j<=10; j++)

           printf(“%d  ”, i*j);

Prints 1 2 3 ..10 2 4 6 ..20 ………10 20 30 ……..100

#include <stdio.h>

void main()

{ int i=1,j=1;


   { while(j<=10)

        { printf(“  %d”, i*j);


     i++;} }

Jumping Statements

Whereas jumping statements are also known as Loop Control Statements.

These statements are of different types

  • break
  • continue
  • goto
  • return, and
  • exit ()
