steps" evaluates to true the loop keeps repeating and each time the
loop repeats in increases "count". Once this is no longer true the
clause returns false, the loop stops and we reach the end of the

No problem. The more I look at it the more I suspect this example is

that I think is designed to make that principle understandable by
looking at this code. Note that two functions named "chirp" are
defined here....
