1.26 Why is there no continue statement?
I thought that continue is problematic because
repeat print("A"); local stop = true; until stop
is not an infinite loop - that is, the scope of locals declared in a repeat includes the condition in the until.
Because of this the stop in
repeat print("A"); continue; local stop = true; until stop
is ambiguous. Now that I think about it, if what's above is correct, then how does goto work?
