In this section, you will learn how to use break statement with continue statement in C.
The continue statement provides a convenient way to force an immediate jump to the loop control statement. The break statement terminates the execution of the loop. As you can see in the given example, we have used both the statements within the do while loop. The program prompts the user to enter any number. If the number is less than 0, the break statement terminates the execution of the loop. If the number is greater than 10, the continue statement skips the value and jumps to the do while loop without terminating the loop. Otherwise, it will print the entered number.
Here is the code:
Output will be displayed as:
Here if you enter number 1, the loop will accept the number and print it. If you enter the number 51,the continue statement will skips the number and move back to the loop and again prompts the user. On entering -1, the loop will not take negative value and the break statement terminates the loop.
