Follow-up Comment #3, bug #55995 (project octave):

This behavior may not be Matlab compatible, but it is not unknown.  I just
tested with Perl and it recognizes a dynamically scoped "next" statement
(equivalent of continue).  The "last" statement (equivalent of break) is also
dynamically scoped.

This probably should be discussed on the Octave Maintainer's e-mail list since
it is a somewhat philosophical point.  One advantage of the current behavior
is that it is already coded.  I don't know how difficult it would be to change
it to have the same behavior as the break statement.
