3.2.99 next

next LABEL

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

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

Note that if there were a continue block in this example, it would execute immediately following the invocation of next. When LABEL is omitted, the command refers to the innermost enclosing loop.
