I hope you're doing well. I have been working on a PHP project and came across something that has been bothering me. I have been trying to understand the difference between the "break" and "continue" statements in PHP, but I'm feeling a bit confused.
To provide some context, I'm relatively new to PHP and still getting the hang of it. I understand that both "break" and "continue" are control statements used in loops, but I'm unsure about their exact usage.
From what I gather, "break" is used to immediately exit a loop, and the program continues execution after the loop. However, I'm not entirely sure about the use cases and if there are any specific scenarios where "break" should be used.
On the other hand, I believe that "continue" is used to skip the rest of the current iteration of a loop and move to the next iteration. This allows the loop to continue running without executing the remaining code within that iteration. Again, I'm not certain about when and why I should use "continue" in my PHP code.
So, I would really appreciate it if someone could clarify the difference between these two statements and provide some practical examples or use cases where I would use them. Any additional tips or best practices would also be very helpful.
Thank you in advance for your help. I'm looking forward to learning from you all.
