continue flow control statement breaks out of the current iteration of a loop and lets execution resume with the next iteration of the loop, presuming there are further iterations left to complete.
var i := 0; while i < 30 do begin i := i + 1; if i = 15 then continue; // skip the following code for "15" only writeLn(i); end;
If the loop is labeled with a name, that name can be used alongside
break to be more explicit about which loop to beak out of. This is especially helpful when using nested loops:
var i := 0; lOuterLoop: while i < 30 do begin i := i + 1; for j := 0 to 20 do begin if i*j = 150 then continue lOuterLoop; // continue the OUTER loop writeLn(i*j); end writeLn(i); end;
