The continue statement works within a for or while loop and passes control to the next iteration of the loop.
Following are the points while using a continue statement in MATLAB:
- Continue statement passes the control of the execution to the next iteration of a for or while loop.
- All remaining statements following the continue statement do not execute for the current iteration.
- The continue statement applies only to the body of the loop where it is called, hence in nested loops, it affects the execution of the loop in which it occurs.
- The continue statement only works inside a for or while loop, and it can't be used inside a function. But if a function is having a for or while loop, there we can use continue inside the loop.
