I noticed this code while making BB collision detection (Bounding box) collision detection. directly from 3DDisplayObject.cpp from (SDK root)\samples\c++\demos\donuts4\
for(;;)
as far as i have been able to decipher it is it like this
for(/*nothing*/ ; /*nothing*/ ; /*nothing*/ )
Does this mean it is a infinty loop? and why don''t we use it while or do for that?

the for(; loop is also equivalent to this: while(1)

its a never ending loop!! YAAAY!

as far as why to use it instead of a while, I do not know. But its equally as fun!

..except when u get stuck in one

Thanks Guyaton, what a quick replay (less than a minute ).
And who wouldn''t hate doing the same thing over and over again.

but thanks anyway
