keyword to pass control to the next iteration of a loop


Inside a for or while loop, the command continue passes control to the next iteration of the loop in which it appears, skipping any remaining statements between this instruction and the loop's end instruction.


for k=1:10,K=k;if k>2&k<=8 then continue,disp('hello'),end,k,end

for j=1:2
  for k=1:10,if k>j+1&k<=8 then continue,end,x=[x,k];end
