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 3 (TCL_BREAK) result
       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"
              }
