5.21 continue

The continue keyword ends the current iteration of the innermost loop (for or while) it is declared in, causing the loop condition to be checked for the next iteration:

while(true) {
	expression1;
	if(condition) continue;
	expression2;
}

Here, expression1 is evaluated for each iteration, but if condition holds, expression2 is not evaluated for the current iteration. Unlike break, iterations continue.

The typer ensures that it appears only within a loop.
