The following example shows the usage of java.lang.System.exit() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class SystemDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

   int arr1[] = { 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
   int arr2[] = { 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 };
   int i;
      
   // copies an array from the specified source array
   System.arraycopy(arr1, 0, arr2, 0, 1);
   System.out.print("array2 = ");
   System.out.print(arr2[0] + " ");
   System.out.print(arr2[1] + " ");
   System.out.println(arr2[2] + " ");
      
   for(i = 0;i < 3;i++) {
   if(arr2[i] > = 20) {
   System.out.println("exit...");
   System.exit(0);
   }
   else {
   System.out.println("arr2["+i+"] = " + arr2[i]);
   }
   }
   }
} 

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

array2 = 0 10 20
arr2[0] = 0
arr2[1] = 10
exit...
