COBOL Continue

>COBOL CONTINUE Clause
The COBOL CONTINUE expression is used: a) to avoid performing any operation if a condition exists. b) to execute instructions only when the ELSE condition is met. When used, the COBOL CONTINUE (or NEXT SENTENCE) must be the only clause following a condition, since it indicates that no action is to be performed. COBOL NEXT SENTENCE is used in place of CONTINUE in COBOL 74.
