The ShellPlus documentation I could find seems to neglect mentioning the basics of what the shell can do and mostly describes features that never made it to the Nitros9 version.

A script I use for looping contains:

goto main

and also

goto loop

Either one of these can loop indefinitely or can have an exit if a condition is 
met. Just enclose the looping routine within a conditional, ex.:

if +%3<>00000

The above quits when var.3=00000
