Python Continue Statement is a loop control statement and mainly used to skip an iteration or ignore that condition. It works opposite to that of a break statement.
Where break statement is instead of terminating the loop and Continue Statement forces to execute the next iteration of the loop.
There are more loop control statements.
- Continue statement
- Break statement
- Pass statement
The continue statement can be used in both while loop and for loop.
1. Python continue statement using in for loop
Below is the implementation of the above idea:
If condition statement with for-loop to check and skip if “a” word found.
for val in "Data": if val == "a": continue print(val) print("The end")
How continue statement works in Loop
2. Python continue statement using in While loop
Using a while loop and if condition to skip a “2” number.
var = 5 while var > 0: var = var - 1 if var == 2: continue print('Current variable value :', var) print("Good bye!")
Current variable value : 4
Current variable value : 3
Current variable value : 1
Current variable value : 0
