loop through ⇝
loopStructured languages like C and its descendents provide loop statements and keywords for some or all of for loop, while loop and repeat loop. See also loop-and-a-half. In other languages these constructs may be synthesised with a jump (assembly language) or a GOTO (early Fortran or BASIC). To "loop through" a list means to process each element in turn.
