MSP430FR5872: WATCHDOG

Part Number: MSP430FR5872

Hi Expert.

In mostly MSP430 example code I am seeing this line in starting of the main loop "WDTCTL = WDTPW | WDTHOLD;  

Can you explain the reason behind this and if we exclude this statement then what could be the consequences?

Thanks In Advance
