continue - skip the remainder of the current iteration of the current inner loop

Synopsis

LOOP_CONSTRUCT; [COMMANDS...;] continue; [COMMANDS...;] end

Description

continue skips the remainder of the current iteration of the current inner loop, such as a for loop or a while loop. It is usually added inside of a conditional block such as an if statement or a switch statement.

Example

The following code removes all tmp files that do not contain the word smurf.

for i in *.tmp
    if grep smurf $i
        continue
    end
    # This "rm" is skipped over if "continue" is executed.
    rm $i
    # As is this "echo"
    echo $i
end
