Using "break" in a function to break a loop or other construct outside the function.

Using "break" in a function to break a loop or other construct outside the function.

Hello. I have a service, it must stop under a certain condition. This condition must contain the "break" construct. I need to make sure that this condition is called literally after every line in the script code. Of course, I did it, but in the end the code turned out to be huge. I tried to shorten it by putting the condition with "break" into the function, and taking the function out of the code. But as I understand it, "break" does not allow it to be used in this way. How it is possible to implement it correctly and beautifully?

If the code you are writing to test the condition is complex, putting it is a function seems like a good choice.

From your description I assume that the "Break" just ends the function. Not your goal. Another approach would have the function return a Boolean which would be a simple test in in the main code to determine if you should continue.

I believe there is also an exit command which might accomplish your goal.
