while Repeat statements an indefinite number of times.
The general form of a while statement is:
The statements are executed while the real part of the expression
has all non-zero elements. The expression is usually the result of
expr rop expr where rop is ==, <, >, <=, >=, or ~=.
The BREAK statement can be used to terminate the loop prematurely.
For example (assuming A already defined):
E = 0*A; F = E + eye(size(E)); N = 1; while norm(E+F-E,1) > 0, E = E + F; F = A*F/N; N = N + 1; end
