In this paper so-called discrete loops are presented
which narrow the gap between general loops
(e.g. while- or repeat-loops) and for-loops.
Although discrete loops can be used for applications
that would otherwise require general loops,
discrete loops are known to complete in any case.
Furthermore it is possible to determine the number of iterations of a
while this is trivial to do for for-loops and extremely difficult
for general loops.
Thus discrete loops form an ideal frame-work for determining
the worst-case timing behavior of a program and
they are especially useful in implementing real-time systems and safety critical systems
and in proving such systems correct.
