continue statement

Syntax
ContinueStatement :
   continue

The continue statement can only be used within a for or while loop and causes the immediate termination of the current iteration, returning control to the loop head.

If used within nested loops the continue statement is associated with the innermost enclosing loop.

An example of a continue statement used within a while loop.

contract Foo {

    pub fn bar() -> u256 {
        let sum: u256
        while sum < 10 {
            sum += 1

            if some_skip_condition() {
                continue
            }
        }

        return sum
    }

    fn some_skip_condition() -> bool {
        # some complex logic
        return true
    }
}

An example of a continue statement used within a for loop.

contract Foo {

    pub fn bar(values: Array<u256, 10>) -> u256 {
        let sum: u256
        for i in values {
            sum = sum + i

            if some_skip_condition() {
                continue
            }
        }
        return sum
    }

    fn some_skip_condition() -> bool {
        # some complex logic
        return true
    }
}
