Hello there.

Do you have a question?

If so, please edit your post to include it in the Tell us what’s happening section.

The more information you give us, the more likely we are to be able to help.

It is not a potential infinite loop, javascript is being kind (and maybe assuming you have information it lacks. Currently, your one-line while statement is absolutely infinite. It will never reach an escape state. i never increments.
