FORTRAN 77 Language Reference


The CONTINUE statement is often used as a place to hang a statement label, usually it is the end of a DO loop.

The CONTINUE statement is used primarily as a convenient point for placing a statement label, particularly as the terminal statement in a DO loop. Execution of a CONTINUE statement has no effect.

If the CONTINUE statement is used as the terminal statement of a DO loop, the next statement executed depends on the DO loop exit condition.
