Subject: [PHP] [php] while loop failure

Does any one knows why while loop below ends after few loops when it meant
to keep in loop?

File name: while_loop_script.php

define('run', 0);
define('START', 10);

while(START >run){

$ch = curl_init("mydomain/update_script.php?action=run");


using php.exe to scheldule task it every 5 minutes:

C:\php.exe D:\update\while_loop_script.php
