SYNTAX

(continue)

DESCRIPTION

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.

EXAMPLES

(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.
