       continue - Skip to the next iteration of a loop


       This  command is typically invoked inside the body of a looping command
       such as for or foreach or while.	 It returns a TCL_CONTINUE code, which
       causes a continue exception to occur.  The exception causes the current
       script to be aborted out to  the	 innermost  containing	loop  command,
       which then continues with the next iteration of the loop.  Catch excep‐
       tions are also handled in a few other situations,  such	as  the	 catch
       command and the outermost scripts of procedure bodies.

       Print a line for each of the integers from 0 to 10 except 5:
	      for {set x 0} {$x<10} {incr x} {
		 if {$x == 5} {
		 puts "x is $x"
