Jumps to FOR or LOOP statements and re-executes test and loop.
Synopsis
CONTINUE
Arguments
The CONTINUE statement does not have any arguments.
Description
The CONTINUE statement is used within the code block of a FOR...NEXT or LOOP...REPEAT statement. CONTINUE causes execution to immediately jump back to the FOR or LOOP keyword, starting a new iteration of the loop. The FOR or LOOP statement evaluates its test condition, and, based on that evaluation, may re-execute the code block loop.
Example
The following example illustrates the use of the CONTINUE statement:
FOR i=1 TO 10
  PRINT i
  IF i=5 THEN CONTINUE
  ELSE PRINT "not five"
NEXT
PRINT "all done"
