Ruby: Continue a loop after catching an exception

Basically, I want to do something like this (in Python, or similar imperative languages):

for i in xrange(1, 5):
try:
do_something_that_might_raise_exceptions(i)
except:
continue # continue the loop at i = i + 1


How do I do this in Ruby? I know there are the
redo
and
retry
keywords, but they seem to re-execute the "try" block, instead of continuing the loop:

for i in 1..5
begin
do_something_that_might_raise_exceptions(i)
rescue
retry # do_something_* again, with same i
end
end

Answer

In Ruby, continue is spelled next.
