Can we use continue statement in a Python if clause?


Python's continue statement is a loop control statement. It causes starting next iteration of loop after abandoning current iteration. Invariably is is executed conditionally i.e. in if block

while expr==True:
    stmt1
    stmt2
    if expr2==True:
       continue
    stmt3
    stmt4

However, it can't be used in an if block if it is not a part of loop. If used, interpreter will throw syntax error.
