You can use while as follows

while any(A) end

**any**(A) assumes first that all values of A can be converted to type **logical**. This conversion turns any number different from zero into **1**. Then, if there is any element of A that is 1, then **any(A)=1** and the iteration continues.

Is this what you want?
