Used to escape from a looping structure ( switch case statement.
If a break statement is executed from within a looping code block the loop will halt execution regardless of the condition controlling the loop. Any remaining statements within the code block will not be executed.
If a break statement is executed from within a case inside of a switch statement, all following case statements are ignored.
The following example searches for a PC with a strength score higher than 12, and repeats until there are no more PCs to search:
As soon as the loop finds a PC with a strength higher than 12 the break statement is called halting the loop and the search for a target. Note that if no PCs are present with a strength score higher than 12, the loop will not exit (seems to be a problem with GetNextPC).
