C++ Continue Statement

C++ language provides a loop control statement known as continue, which is also used within a loop. When a continue statement is encountered in a loop of a program in execution, it skips executing the rest of statements in the loop for that particular iteration and the program continues with the next iteration and condition checking in the loop.

Continue statement example

// C++ continue statement example 


int main() // main method and program begins here

for(int i=0;i<5;i++)

	cout<<"i = " << i <<"\n";

cout<<"We are out of the loop");

return 0;
} // main method ends and so does the program


i = 0
i = 1
i = 2
i = 4
We are out of the loop

As you may see in the output of the program, when continue statement was encountered within an executing for loop, it skipped executing the printf() statement in the loop for that particular iteration i.e. when i is equal to 3. The program continued normally with the next iteration(i is equal to 4) and condition checking.
