Why did break statement not going to the Inner loop by specifying the label Inner in the following code?.
class forloop {
public static void main (String args[]) {
//int j,k;
Outer: for(int i=0; i < 2; i++) {
System.out.println("i out "+i);
Inner:for(int j=0; j < 3; j++) {
if (i==j) {
break Inner; //Does not go to the Inner label and increments j
}
System.out.println("i is " +i +" j is " +j);
}
}
}
}
Thanks,
Iyer.

Break statement would try to break out of the enclosing loop while continue statement would try to continue the enclosing loop with the next loop-variable value -- if your intention is to continue the loop, use continue <label> instead.
Hope this helps.
