Paragraph 11 The break statement exits the nearest enclosing switch, while, do, for, or foreach statement. break-statement : break ;
Paragraph 21 The target of a break statement is the end point of the nearest enclosing switch, while, do, for, or foreach statement. 2 If a break statement is not enclosed by a switch, while, do, for, or foreach statement, a compile-time error occurs.
Paragraph 31 When multiple switch, while, do, for, or foreach statements are nested within each other, a break statement applies only to the innermost statement. 2 To transfer control across multiple nesting levels, a goto statement (§15.9.3) must be used.
Paragraph 41 A break statement cannot exit a finally block (§15.10). 2 When a break statement occurs within a finally block, the target of the break statement must be within the same finally block; otherwise a compile-time error occurs.
Paragraph 51 A break statement is executed as follows:
Paragraph 61 Because a break statement unconditionally transfers control elsewhere, the end point of a break statement is never reachable.
- 2 If the break statement exits one or more try blocks with associated finally blocks, control is initially transferred to the finally block of the innermost try statement. 3 When and if control reaches the end point of a finally block, control is transferred to the finally block of the next enclosing try statement. 4 This process is repeated until the finally blocks of all intervening try statements have been executed.
- 5 Control is transferred to the target of the break statement.
