Figures Appendix

Following is a figure detailing the use of the LE and LS segments in conjunction.

LE is a control segment. LE is always used in conjunction with a corresponding loop header (start) - LS, as illustrated below. The LS and LE indicate the start and end of a loop but are not part of the iteration of the loop.
