Andreas, you'd probably like Dave Beazley's *Python
The specific answer in this case is, use while, and
in fact the continue will do just what it should.
When in doubt, Python inclines to minimalism. A C-
like "for (;;)" isn't really necessary, and Python
doesn't go to the trouble of cluttering itself up
with this and other superfluities.
