The continue Statement

Sometimes you don’t want to entirely exit from a loop, but instead wish to skip the remaining statements just for this iteration of the loop. In such cases, you can use the continue command. Following Example shows this in use.

<script>
haystack = new Array()
haystack[4] = "Needle"
haystack[11] = "Needle"
haystack[17] = "Needle"
for (j = 0 ; j < 20 ; ++j)
{
if (haystack[j] == "Needle")
{
document.write("<br />- Found at location " + j + "<br />")
continue
}
document.write(j + ", ")
}
</script>
