I've been coding in python for a reasonable amount of time now
(coding in total for approx. 20 years) and am writing a performance
intensive program in python.
The problem I'm having is I want to use break and continue to get
out from more than one level of loop. If I set a variable and then
check it my program will take too much of a performance hit.
Are there any alternatives people can think of?
How about raising an exception that can't be caught inside the
try:...except:... you want to catch it? (Note: this rules out catchall
