counting-loop.c: A basic program about loops

As a basic program about loops, consider the following code that prints the numbers from one to ten, with each number on a new line. Commentary after the program explains each element of this program.


/*
 * Program using a simple loop that prints the numbers from 1 to 10.
 */
#include <stdio.h>

int
main()
{
  int i;

  printf("Program to print the numbers from 1 to 10.\n");

  for (i = 1; i < 11; i++)
    {
      printf("%d\n", i);
    }

  return 0;
}
