What Continue Statement In C++

The continue statement can be used in loops and has the opposite effect to break,
that is, the next loop is begun immediately.In the case of a while or do-while loop the program jumps to the test expression, whereas a for loop is reinitialized.


for( int i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) { 

. . . // Processes all integers. 

if( i % 2 == 1)


. . . // Process even // numbers only. }

If we want to skip some statement in the loop then we can use there continue statement. It mostly used when we want to skip the rest of the statement in the current loop and start from the top again.

The continue statement is very similar to the break statement, except that instead of
terminating the loop, it starts executing the body of the loop over from the top. For example, if you modify the previous program to total only numbers larger than 0.

Simple example of continue statement in c++

using namespace std;
int main(){
int i=1;
cout<<“Welcome %dn”,i;
cout<<“Exit from loop here”;

welcome 1
welcome 2
welcome 3
welcome 4
welcome 5
Exit from loop here
