6.3.6 Behavior of continue

SINGULAR's continue construct is only valid inside the body of a for or while construct. It skips the rest of the loop-body and jumps to the beginning of the block. Unlike the C-construct SINGULAR's continue does not execute the increment statement. For example,

for (int i = 1 ; i<=10; i=i+1)
   if (i==3) { i=8;continue; }
     // skip the rest if i is 3 and
     // continue with the next i: 8
==> 1
==> 2
==> 8
==> 9
==> 10
