Julia break Keyword | Exiting from a loop in Julia

Keywords in Julia are predefined words that have a definite meaning to the compiler. These keywords can’t be used to name variables.

'break' keyword in Julia is used to exit from a loop immediately. Whenever the break keyword is executed, the compiler immediately stops iterating over further values and sends the execution pointer out of the loop.
Syntax:

loop condition
    statement
    statement
    break
    statement
end
