General Development I like this one: "By definition, a program is an entity that is run by the computer. It talks directly to the CPU and the OS. Code that does not talk directly to the CPU and the OS, but is instead run by some other program that does talk directly to the CPU and the OS, is not a program; it's a script." Here's the other eleven.

What language has "Repeat" anyway?

Pascal.

Oh and in C that would be the do..while cycle.

Oh right, I had forgot about. Been a long time since I used Pascal.
I certainly wouldn't say that is a better language construct than "while" though.

Nah, that has the evil word "while" in it. We can't have that ;)

And is not the same, do..while(repeat) will execute the cycle at least once, the while cycle may not get to be executed at all, obviously the guy making such statement is clueless.
