That's actually a pretty good error message. It's referring to the "continue" statement in the "catch" area.

A "continue" is only allowed in a loop, and this part of the code is not inside of a loop. It doesn't appear anything more needs to be done once the error message is given, so since that's the end of the program anyway that 'continue" line can be simply deleted.
