The continue keyword skips the rest of the current iteration of a while, for, or do/while loop. It continues by checking the conditional expression of the loop, and proceeding with any subsequent iterations.


for (x = 0; x < 255; x ++) {
    if (x > 40 && x < 120) {      // create jump in values
        continue;   // skips the next two lines and goes to the
                    // beginning of the loop, with the next value of x

    digitalWrite(PWMpin, x);
