I believe you got caught up in Hyperbole.
No, I just got fed up by the so-called professionals around my area (within range of 400 km).

difference between for and while statements, and when and why you should use each?
I will try to improvise.
  1. There is no difference, just sugar coating. The main answer is in the hands of Assembly generated, which (I believe) will be same.
  2. For normally leaves the control to "what data has", whereas while leaves the control to what user 2as (or what program has).
  3. For can be helpful in cases where you know where to start and where to end, whereas while is helpful in cases where you just know when to stop (unexpected end possibly).
  4. For has a cleaner syntax (IMO), while requires extra statements that are embedded in for loop's statement.
In the light of what I have said above, use for in cases where you are going to iterate over a collection of available data; contacts, database records, or any already available data structure, whereas while can be helping for the cases where you are still capturing the data; loading the buffers, reading files, getting data from user — enter 'q' to quit etc.
