The break Statement - Maple Programming Help

The break Statement

Description

 • When the break statement is executed, the result is to exit from the innermost repetition (for/while/do) statement within which it occurs.
 • After exit, execution proceeds, with the first statement following the repetition statement.
 • It is an error if a break is executed in a context other than within a repetition statement.
 • In Maple V Release 5.1 and earlier, break was just a Maple symbol. In Maple 6 and later, break is a keyword in the Maple language.

Examples

 > L := [1, 2, "abc", "a", 7.0, infinity]:
 > for x in L do     if type(x, 'string') then         print(x);         break;     end if; end do;
 ${"abc"}$ (1)
