Fix Python – Example use of “continue” statement in Python?

Question

Asked By – JohnG

The definition of the continue statement is:

The continue statement continues with the next iteration of the loop.

I can’t find any good examples of code.

Could someone suggest some simple cases where continue is necessary?

Answer

Here’s a simple example:

for letter in 'Django':    
    if letter == 'D':
        continue
    print("Current Letter: " + letter)

Output will be:

Current Letter: j
Current Letter: a
Current Letter: n
Current Letter: g
Current Letter: o

It skips the rest of the current iteration (here: print) and continues to the next iteration of the loop.
