Every person I train in Lua asks me why 'continue' doesn't work. I show them the "equivalent", and it never meets with any kind of satisfaction.


I'm in the camp where I see a real need for it in Lua, not only for
clarity, but because it is a very useful loop construct that anyone
coming from another popular (scripting) language will expect to be able
to use.

Any comment about this?

It is curious that the number of times I have missed 'continue' exceeds the number of times I've needed 'repeat' (which is 0).

But that's just me. :)
