Bifurcation of Control

The break instruction.
Using break we can leave a loop even if the condition for its end is not fulfilled. It can be used to end an infinite loop, or to force it to end before its natural end. For example, we are going to stop the count down before it naturally finishes (an engine failure maybe):
// break loop example Output
#include 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, countdown aborted!
int main ()
int n;
for (n=10; n>0; n--)
cout << n << ", ";
if (n==3)
cout << "countdown aborted!";
return 0;
