Tcl Built-In Commands
break - Abort looping command
This command is typically invoked inside the body of a looping command
such as for or foreach or while.
It returns a TCL_BREAK code, which causes a break exception
The exception causes the current script to be aborted
out to the innermost containing loop command, which then
aborts its execution and returns normally.
Break exceptions are also handled in a few other situations, such
as the catch command, Tk event bindings, and the outermost
scripts of procedure bodies.
