repeat expression

Execute statements n times, where n is the integer result of evaluating expression. The expression is evaluated once only when the block is entered, and the integer value computed is used as the loop counter. The value is tested for zero, which will terminate the loop, and is decremented after each pass. A negative value will produce an error and the script will terminate.
