SHORT DESCRIPTION
	Describes how the Continue statement immediately returns the program flow
	to the top of a program loop.


LONG DESCRIPTION
	In a script, the Continue statement immediately returns the program flow
	to the top of the innermost loop that is controlled by a For, Foreach, or
	While statement.


	The Continue keyword supports labels. A label is a name you assign to a 
	statement in a script. For information about labels, see about_Break.


	In the following example, program flow returns to the top of the While loop
	if the $ctr variable is equal to 5. As a result, all the numbers between 1 
	and 10 are displayed except for 5:

		while ($ctr -lt 10)
			 {
			 $ctr +=1 
			 if ($ctr -eq 5) {continue}
			 Write-Host $ctr
			 }


	Note that in a For loop, execution continues at the first line in the 
	loop. If the arguments of the For statement test a value that is 
	modified by the For statement, an infinite loop may result.
