int i = 0, j = 0, k = 0;
do while (i++ < 3)
System.out.print(k++);
while (j++ < 3);
Why would the output be 012? Wuldn't the do loop be executed 3 times?

do
while (i++ < 3)
System.out.print(k++); //prints 012
while (j++ < 3);
Outer while does loop 3 times, but i has already incremented and is greater than 3, so inner while condition is false and nothing is printed.
I hope this helps.
