    Help for some loop count problem..

    Hi,

    just curious what exactly the "continue", "break" stand for ?
    can some one enlighten me based on the source code below.

    i'm in doubt for understand the source code below.
    Assume that the largest number key in = 14

    y i remove the continue, the value = 13 / 91

    if with continue, answer = 10 /67

    Code:
    
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    
    int s,n;
    
    main()
    {
    		int m;
    		int i=0;
    
    		printf("Enter largest number:");
    		scanf("%d",&m);
    		while(1){
    		i++;
    
    		if(i==m) break;
    		if(i%4 ==0) continue;
    		n++;
    		s+=i;
    
    		}
    
    		printf("%d numbers indivisible by 4\n");
    		printf("and less than %d\n\n");
    		printf("Total is %d\n",n,m, s);
    
    
    		getchar();
    		getchar();
    
    		clrscr();
    
    }

    Funny, I would expect that you wouldn't get ANY sensible output at all, since all your arguments to printf is for the last printf, and the first two have no arguments at all...

    continue means "jump to the end of the loop and go on from there" [not "Out of the loop", but just before the loop starts over again at the top].

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    Continue will jump to the beginning of the loop and break will "break" the loop, cancel it.
    But use proper indentation, please. The code is an eyesore.
