So, why even want a continue block on given/when? It's not needed, and isn't consistent.

I see what you mean, maybe I'm still too attached to the concepts of the workaround...(which is easier to understand for me)

Anyway I think you have a plus because you can use last for leaving without executing the continue block.

# using continue-block my @res; for (@test){ push (@res, "abc") if (/abc/); push (@res, "def") && last if (/def/); push (@res, "xyz") && next if (/xyz/); push (@res, "default"); } continue { print "\nFOR/CONT($_):",@res; @res=(); }

OUTPUT:

=== For/Continue FOR/CONT(abc): abc default

    my @test = qw[abc def ghi xyz]; my @res; for (@test) { when (/abc/) {push @res, "abc"; continue} when (/def/) {push @res, "def"; last} when (/xyz/) {push @res, "xyz"; next} default {push @res, "default"} } continue { print "FOR/CONT($_): @res\n"; @res = (); } __END__ FOR/CONT(abc): abc default
      Sure that works, because one can also combine For/When!

        Which means you can have your continue block - just spell given as for - you'd save 2 keystrokes as well.
