I am having a GREAT time writing Julia code! I write a lot of machine learning code that requires some kind of optimisation/decent and so on and I am missing the do-while construct. Most code I write requires the calculation to be done once before it hits a condition, so I end up kind of executing the code once outside a while loop before entering the loop or doing some other kind of kludge, which is unfortunate given how lovely and clean everything else is
I think the language would really benefit from adding a do-while loop given that its main focus is writing numerical algorithms.
Thank you kindly.
