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 4	(TCL_CONTINUE)	result
       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.
       Continue	exceptions 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
