The break statement "jumps out" of a loop.
The continue statement "jumps over" one iteration in the loop.
You have already seen the break statement used in an earlier chapter of this tutorial. It was used to "jump out" of a switch() statement.
The break statement can also be used to jump out of a loop.
The break statement breaks the loop and continues executing the code after the loop (if any):
Since the if statement has only one single line of code, the braces can be omitted:
The continue statement breaks one iteration (in the loop), if a specified condition occurs, and continues with the next iteration in the loop.
This example skips the value of 3:
The continue statement (with or without a label reference) can only be used inside a loop.
The break statement, without a label reference, can only be used inside a loop or a switch.
