10.3.7  Going to the next iteration of a loop

The continue command will skip the rest of the current iteration of a loop and go to the next iteration. For example, if you enter

  S := 0
  for (j := 1, j <= 10; j++) {
     if (j == 5) {continue;}
     S := S + j;
  }

then S will be 50, which is the sum of the integers from 1 to 10 except for 5, since the loop never gets to S := S + j when j is equal to 5.
