C++ continue statement2 min read

The continue statement works like a break statement, instead of terminating the loop the continue statement skips the code in between and passes the execution to the next iteration in the loop.

In case of for loop, the continue statement causes the program to jump and pass the execution to the condition and update expression by skipping further statement. Whereas in the case of while and do…while loops, the continue statement passes the control to the conditional checking expression.

Example of C++ continue statement

Example: Use of continue in for loop in C++ programming.


As you can see in the above output the 6th iteration is skipped. When the value of i becomes 6, if statement is executed and hence the continue statement. Then the control is passed to the update expression of the for loop and i becomes 7.

Example: Use of continue in do-while loop loop in C++ programming


In the above output, 5th iteration is skipped.
