I suppose you mean a while loop? For was in Perforce Jam 2.3.2
Perforce Jam 2.4 has while, so you can use that, too.
I'm sure it's OK to use /semantic/ extensions (i.e. our own builtins) in
Jambase, and I /think/ syntactic extensions (e.g. "for local x in $(y)")
are OK too, but you should check that by rebuilding via invoking a stock
Perforce Jam 2.3.2.
I think the only place you really get in trouble is with the Jamfile
used to rebuild Jam itself, which we'd like to keep compatible with
