MATLAB: Is there a way to call Continue in a loop less script

continueMATLABscript

Is there any way to call a continue statement in a script that does not contain a loop to continue the caller context loop ?
Since script are just chunks of code that will be runned in the caller context and can access it's variable, it would make sence that the continue statement can affect the caller context's loop.
When a continue is written outside a loop, Matlab's interpreter signals an error. That makes sence because the interpreter has no way to know that this script will be runed in a loop. What dosen't makes sence is that the error is thrown when the script is executed in a suitable context.
Any way to prevent this ?
Thank you all for your time.

  • Instead of calling continue directly, you can set a flag in the inner script. The outer script, which contains the loop, uses the flag to continue to the next iteration.
    for
    % ------------

    % inner script
    if
    flag = 1;
    else
    flag = 0;
    end
    % ------------
    if flag == 1
    continue
    end
    end
