NAME

       break - Abort looping command

SYNOPSIS

       break
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

       This  command  is  typically  invoked  inside the body of a looping command such as for or
       foreach or while.  It returns a TCL_BREAK code, which causes a break exception  to  occur.
       The exception causes the current script to be aborted out to the innermost containing loop
       command, which then aborts its execution and returns normally.  Break exceptions are  also
       handled  in  a few other situations, such as the catch command, Tk event bindings, and the
       outermost scripts of procedure bodies.

EXAMPLE

       Print a line for each of the integers from 0 to 5:
              for {set x 0} {$x<10} {incr x} {
                 if {$x > 5} {
                    break
                 }
                 puts "x is $x"
              }
