NAME

next - iterate a block prematurely


SYNOPSIS

next LABEL

next


DESCRIPTION

The next command is like the continue statement in C; it starts the next iteration of the loop:

    LINE: while (<STDIN>) {
        next LINE if /^#/;      # discard comments
        ...
    }

Note that if there were a continue block on the above, it would get executed even on discarded lines. If the LABEL is omitted, the command refers to the innermost enclosing loop.
