switch is a looping structure in PHP, just like for, but
one-time. Use "continue 2;" if you want to continue the
outer loop.

When a continue is used inside of a switch statement (inside a loop), it does not jump 
to the top of the next
loop iteration, but instead jumps out of the switch statement and proceeds to execute 
the code following the
switch.  The following code snippet should give a good example:

 for( $i = 0; $i < 10; $i++ ) {
      switch( $i ) {
        case 5:
          $garbage = 0; // do something unimportant
      echo "$i<BR>";

The output *should* be the numbers 0 to 4 & 6 to 9 listed down the screen, skipping 5. 
Instead, 5 appears
in the list making it a complete 0 to 9.
