[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

Me also no programming language programmer, but I think it is quite
clear that break and end are quite similar: They have to clean up all
local variables of the current sub-stack.

continue is quite different, it has to somehow "restart a loop" ...
for this you need quite a bit of overhead I think. Though of course it
could be somehow abbreviated by "goto end of loop", this also usually
should be possible.
