break statement in C programming language

The break statement is used for the termination of the loop or switch statement.

The syntax for a break statement in C is as follows :
break;

Example 1 :
#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
      int i=0;
      while(i < 10)
      {
            i++;
            if(i == 5 )
                  break;
      }
      printf("Loop stopped at i = %d",i);
      return 0;
}

Output :
Loop stopped at i = 5


Example 2 :
#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
      int number;
      printf("Enter a number between 1 and 5 : ");
      scanf("%d",&number);
      switch(number)
      {
            case 1:
                  printf("You chose One");
                  break;
            case 2:
                  printf("You chose Two");
                  break;
            case 3:
                  printf("You chose Three");
                  break;
            case 4:
                  printf("You chose Four");
                  break;
            case 5:
                  printf("You chose Five.");
                  break;
            default :
                  printf("Invalid Choice!");
                  break;
      }
}

Output :
Enter a number between 1 and 5 : 2
You chose Two
