MATLAB - The break Statement

The break statement terminates execution of for or while loop. Statements in the loop that appear after the break statement are not executed.

In nested loops, break exits only from the loop in which it occurs. Control passes to the statement following the end of that loop.

MATLAB break statement


Create a script file and type the following code −

a = 10;
% while loop execution 
while (a < 20 )
   fprintf('value of a: %d\n', a);
   a = a + 1;
      if( a > 15)
         % terminate the loop using break statement 

When you run the file, it displays the following result −

value of a: 10
value of a: 11
value of a: 12
value of a: 13
value of a: 14
value of a: 15
