Well, it's pretty easy, actually. While takes an expression, and if that
expression returns true, it evaluates the code inside the brackets, and
then it tests the expression again. This expression can be anything from
"true", to "i<100", or even a function (that can do absolutely
anything). in the second case it's "1::second=>now", which will return
true when 1 second have passed.
Hope that helps,
