NEXT SENTENCE vs CONTINUE
What is CONTINUE?
Posted: 26 Apr 02
CONTINUE is a real COBOL statement that has no effect upon the execution of the program.
CONTINUE is most useful within a conditional phrase of another statement when no action is desired when the condition occurs (that is, correct COBOL syntax requires a statement even though the programmer wants nothing done).
IF TOTAL-RECORD-COUNT > 0
SET MASTER-AT-END TO TRUE
NOT AT END
ADD 1 TO TOTAL-RECORD-COUNT
