Starting a Loop over again

If I am in a while/end loop and I find that I have a mistake and want to get out of the loop and start the loop over again, how do I do it?
I have tried break but that gets me out of the loop and positions me to go on the next part of the script. Instead, I want to go back and start the loop over again.
Thanks,
Dave

continue
as in
c = 0;
while c <= 100
I_detected_an_error = rand() < 0.07;
if I_detected_an_error
disp('LART!')
continue;
end
c = c + 1;
end

I think you need to set c = 1 just before the continue if you really want to start the loop all over again from the beginning, instead of just continuing with the next iteration.

Ah, yes, that is a plausible interpretation of the question. Not what I would have guessed, but plausible.
