CONTINUE

CONTINUE

The CONTINUE statement provides a convenient way to immediately start the next iteration of the enclosing FOR, FOREACH, WHILE, or REPEAT loop.

Note: Do not confuse the CONTINUE statement described here with the .CONTINUE executive command. The two constructs are not related, and serve completely different purposes.

Note: CONTINUE is not allowed within CASE or SWITCH statements. This is in contrast with the C language, which does allow this.

Examples


This example presents one way (not necessarily the best) to print the even numbers between 1 and 10.

FOR I = 1,10 DO BEGIN
   ; If odd, start next iteration:
   IF (I AND 1) THEN CONTINUE 
   PRINT, I
ENDFOR
