Alas, I don't consider it a solution at all, since it prevents you from using regular breaks in the same construct [unless you're willing to add even more control routing code... :-(].

In other words, "continue" is definitely still at the top of my Lua wish list.


my solution is for "continue" construct only. I agree with you that
having both "break" and "continue" within a same loop poses a
challenge to Lua. Work around involves unnecessary flag and looks

I hope that there is enough interest in having "continue" statement
implemented in Lua 5.2. Any comments by developers??
