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.
       Catch 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"
              }
