Normally, it is better to avoid loops in R. But for highly individual tasks a vectorization is not always possible. Hence, a loop is needed – if the problem is decomposable.
Which different kinds of loops exist in R and which one to use in which situation?
In each programming language, for- and while-loops (sometimes until-loops) exist. These loops are sequential and not that fast – in R.
