Abstract A new control structure construct, the <u>while-until</u>, is introduced as a syntactic combination of the <u>while</u> and the <u>until</u>. Examples are shown indicating that use of the <u>while-until</u> can lead to structured programs that are conceptually more manageable than those attainable without it. The <u>while-until</u> statement is then extended to a valuereturning expression which is shown to be more powerful than either the <u>while</u> or the <u>until</u>.
