 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.
