Question 62 (2010):

Submission reference: IN1958

Hi, Just wondering if there is an occam-pi alternative to the Java/C continue inside a while loop? For the mars assessment, I have sent an operator response and no longer want to continue with the rest of the code in that iteration of the loop. Thanks in advance :-)

Answer 62:

Nope – continue statements are evil and lead to tears. Set a BOOL flag when you send to the operator and use an IF construct to skip the rest of the code. That's explicit and we can see what's happening.
