Doc Bug #77053 Invalid "continue" handling change in PHP 7 is undocumented
Submitted: 2018-10-24 14:50 UTC Modified: 2018-11-05 16:20 UTC
From: samuel at ritterwagner dot de Assigned: cmb (profile)
Status: Closed Package: Documentation problem
PHP Version: 7.0.32 OS: any
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Description:
------------
---
From manual page: https://php.net/migration70.incompatible
---

The continue statement is only valid inside loops and switches. In PHP 5.6, a continue in an invalid context throws a Fatal Error when it is encountered during the execution. Starting from PHP 7.0, a Fatal Error is thrown at parsing time, which is not documented anywhere.

Test script:
---------------
if (false) {
    continue;
}

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.
