    Default Continue statement?

    I read on how to use the continue statement, but I'm failing in how to use it properly, mostly because it's not working. I'm supposed to print out what numbers are showing up and how many times for each. Plus, I have to print out 'times' instead of 'time' if there's more than one of a certain number. Right now, it's printing out all the numbers including the ones that don't get inputted. Help please.
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class occurrence {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
     
    	//scanner/values
    		Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    		int number = 101;
     
    	//array
    		int[] allNum = new int[number];
     
    	//for loop, user input
    		for(int i = 1; number != 0; i++) {
    			System.out.print("Please enter integers from 1 to 100, enter 0 when finished: ");
    				number = input.nextInt();
    			allNum[number]++;
    			}
    		//printout
    		for(int j = 1; j <= 100; j++) {
    			if (allNum[number] == 1) {
    				System.out.println(j + " shows " + allNum[j] + " time.");
    			}
    			else if (allNum[number] > 1) {
    				System.out.println(j + " shows " + allNum[j] + " times.");
    			}
    			if (allNum[number] == 0) {
    				continue;
    			}
     
    		}
    	}
    }

    The continue is used to skip the execution of the rest of the code inside of a loop.
    Putting the continue at the end of a loop won't skip any code.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Sorry, thought I changed it back to the original. This is what I had before.
    for(int j = 1; j <= 100; j++) {
    	                if (allNum[number] == 0) {
    				continue;
    			}
    			if (allNum[number] == 1) {
    				System.out.println(j + " shows " + allNum[j] + " time.");
    			}
    			else if (allNum[number] > 1) {
    				System.out.println(j + " shows " + allNum[j] + " times.");
    			}			
    		}
    This is also the part where I have to change 'time' to 'times'
    1 shows 1 time.
    2 shows 2 time.
    3 shows 0 time.
    4 shows 4 time.
    5 shows 3 time.
    6 shows 1 time.
    7 shows 1 time.
    8 shows 1 time.

    Check the use of array indexes: j vs number

    Thanks for that, but how would I change the word 'time' like in box#3 to 'times' if more than 1?

    Default Re: Continue statement?

    print the String up to the end of "...time"
    then test the number and print one of the following to end the line:
    if == 1 print "."
    if > 1 print "s."
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
