To break out of nested (multiple) loops you need to use a variable to keep track of whether you’re trying to exit and check it each time the parent loop occurs.
Example Break in nested loops Python
Simple example code.
is_looping = True for i in range(5): # outer loop for x in range(4): # inner loop if x == 2: is_looping = False print("Inner Loop Break", x) break # break out of the inner loop if not is_looping: print("Outer Loop Break", i) break # break out of outer loop
for i in range(3): print("Outer loop:", i) for j in range(3): print("Inner loop:", j) if j == 1: break # Breaks out of the inner loop
In this example, the inner loop is terminated when the value of
j is equal to 1. As a result, it breaks out of the inner loop and continues with the next iteration of the outer loop.
Note: the break statement only exits the innermost loop it is placed in. You may need additional statements to break out of the desired loop if you have multiple nested loops.
