Julia break Keyword | Exiting from a loop in Julia
  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

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

Example 1:




# Julia program to illustrate
# the use of 'break' keyword
  
# Defining for-loop
for i in 1:10
    if i == 6  
        # Using 'break' keyword
        break
    else
        println(i)
    end
end

Output:

1
2
3
4
5

Example 2:




# Julia program to illustrate
# the use of 'break' keyword
  
i = 0
  
# Defining while-loop
while true
    global i = i + 1
    if i == 6
        # Using 'break' keyword
        break
    else
        println(i)
    end
end

Output:

1
2
3
4
5
