continue(n)		     Tcl Built-In Commands		   continue(n)

______________________________________________________________________________

NAME
       continue	- Skip to the next iteration of	a loop

SYNOPSIS
       continue
______________________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       This  command is	typically invoked inside the body of a looping command
       such as for or foreach or while.	 It returns a TCL_CONTINUE code, which
       causes a	continue exception to occur.  The exception causes the current
       script to be aborted out	to  the	 innermost  containing	loop  command,
       which then continues with the next iteration of the loop.  Catch	excep-
       tions are also handled in a few other situations,  such	as  the	 catch
       command and the outermost scripts of procedure bodies.

EXAMPLE
       Print a line for	each of	the integers from 0 to 10 except 5:
	      for {set x 0} {$x<10} {incr x} {
		 if {$x	== 5} {
		    continue
		 }
		 puts "x is $x"
	      }

SEE ALSO
