Accepted answer

Hi,

yes continue in MATLAB is the same as in C. However when I look at that while loop:

while j<=n if j==i continue; end

this can`t even work in C. If j == i you will hit an endless loop because j never changes. Maybe you are missing to increment j before the continue statement?

thanx for reply. but dear friedrich i already incremented j, problem is something else.

No, the problem is precisely here. You increment `j` after the conditional statement, so your code is looping between the WHILE and the CONTINUE, without ever incrementing `j`. It would be the exact same in `C`, unless you had a `j++` in either condition.

Without seeing the code, we cannot guess what's going on. Please, kpreet, think twice: Do you really think that a useful answer is possible based on this level of information?

for i=istart:n

if distmin>dist2

. . . . .

end
