12.7.6.6. REPEAT Statement

[begin_label:] REPEAT
    statement_list
UNTIL search_condition
END REPEAT [end_label]

The statement list within a REPEAT statement is repeated until the search_condition is true. Thus, a REPEAT always enters the loop at least once. statement_list consists of one or more statements, each terminated by a semicolon (;) statement delimiter.

A REPEAT statement can be labeled. See Section 12.7.1, “BEGIN ... END Compound Statement Syntax” for the rules regarding label use.

Example:

mysql> delimiter //

mysql> CREATE PROCEDURE dorepeat(p1 INT)
    -> BEGIN
    ->   SET @x = 0;
    ->   REPEAT SET @x = @x + 1; UNTIL @x > p1 END REPEAT;
    -> END
    -> //
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> CALL dorepeat(1000)//
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT @x//
+------+
| @x   |
+------+
| 1001 |
+------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
