Loop "next" Statement

This section describes what is a loop 'next' statement in H language.

A loop "next" statement is a statement that skips the rest sub-statements of the loop group statement and jumps to the beginning of the next iteration of the loop.

A loop "next" statement has the following syntax:

loop (
   ...;
   $next;
   ...;
);

Examples of loop "next" statements are:

weekDays = array(0,1,2,3,4,5,6);
$for d $in weekDays, (
   $if d < 1 & d > 5, (
      write("We are closed today!");
	  $next;
   );
   
   write("Welcome to our store!");
   write("We are open from 9am to 9pm today.");
);

Design options:

1. Use "$next" as the keyword to identify "next" statements.

2. Use "$continue" as the keyword to identify "next" statements.

3. Do not support "next" statements, because they can be replaced with "if" statements.
