The boolean code that's used to evaluate the while condition can be preceded by code that executes a regular command.
e.g. while {_a=_a+1; _a<10} do {...}

Different than in IF statements, the condition in a WHILE loop can use curly braces not parentheses, unless it has multiple conditions, as shown above. So this will be a problem: while (variable1 == "wait") do... But this will work: while {variable1 == "wait"} do...
