How to Keep Nested For Loop Indexes From Equaling Each Other

1 view (last 30 days)
If I have two nested for loops like this, is there a way to skip the iteration where i=j?
for i=1:50
for j=1:50
code
end
end

Use the continue keyword.
for i=1:50
for j=1:50
if j==i
continue; % breaks the inner for loop at the current iteration
else
% Do stuff here
fprintf('i=%d, j=%d\n',i,j);
end
end
end
