    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.
        which should also mean that one can mix when andif/unless within a for-block -one would save keystroke for continue and next statements! 8)

        Cheers Rolf
