continue

keyword to pass control to the next iteration of a loop

Description

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.

Examples

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

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