The CONTINUE command transfers program control to the end of a FOR or WHILE loop (just before the DO/DOEND command), allowing the loop to repeat. You can use CONTINUE only within programs and only with FOR or WHILE.
Example 9-20 Skipping Over Code in a FOR Loop
In the following lines from a program, an IF command is used to test whether total sales for a district exceed 5,000,000. When sales are more this amount, the program goes on to produce a report for that district. However, when a district's sales are less than the amount, the CONTINUE command is used to transfer control to the end of the FOR loop (just before the DOEND command). No lines are produced for that district, and the program goes on to test the next district in the status list.
... FOR district DO IF TOTAL(sales, district) LT 5000000 THEN CONTINUE ... "(report commands for districts with total sales above 5,000,000) DOEND ...
