Continue Statement in Python with Example

Updated: Feb 17


The continue statement is used within a loop to skip the rest of the statements in the body of loop for the current iteration and jump to the start of the loop for next iteration. The break and continue statements are opposite each other which are used to change the flow of loop, break terminates the loop when a condition is got and continue leave out the current iteration. The continue statement is used in both while and for loops. To contine in a loop we can use the continue keyword.
