Skip over a value in the range function in python

What is the pythonic way of looping through a range of numbers and skipping over one value? For example, the range is from 0 to 100 and I would like to skip 50.

Edit:
Here's the code that I'm using

for i in range(0, len(list)):
x= listRow(list, i)
for j in range (#0 to len(list) not including x#)
...

Answer

You can use any of these:

# Create a range that does not contain 50
for i in [x for x in xrange(100) if x != 50]:
    print i

# Create 2 ranges [0,49] and [51, 100]
for i in range(50) + range(51, 100):
    print i

# Create a iterator and skip 50
xr = iter(xrange(100))
for i in xr:
    print i
    if i == 49:
        next(xr)

# Simply continue in the loop if the number is 50
for i in range(100):
    if i == 50:
        continue
    print i
