The CONTINUE function attempts to continue from the break loop. This is valid only for CERRORs (continuable errors). If CONTINUE is evaluated while not in a break loop, an error is generated - "error: not in a break loop". This error does not cause XLISP to go into a break loop. CONTINUE never actually returns a value.
(continue) ; error: not in a break loop (break "out") ; break: out (continue) ; to continue from break loop ; BREAK returns NIL
KEYSTROKE EQUIVALENT: In the IBM PC and MS-DOS versions of XLISP, a CTRL-p key sequence has the same effect as doing a (CONTINUE). On a Macintosh, this can be accomplished by a pull-down menu or a COMMAND-p.
