SEARCH and CONTINUE statements in COBOL

The COBOL Language Reference Manual online gives information on the SEARCH and CONTINUE statements.

I'd like to know what SEARCH and CONTINUE are used for in COBOL.

"You can read about SEARCH and CONTINUE on pages 458-464 and 343, respectively, in the COBOL Language Reference Manual online." Tom Ross, Software Engineer, IBM
