Example:-

In this above program, the variable count is initialized as . Then a while loop is executed as long as the variable count is less than 10. Inside the while loop, the count variable is incremented by 1 with each iteration (count = count + 1). Next, we have an if statement that checks the variable count is equal to 5, if it return TRUE causes loop to break or terminate. Within the loop there is a cout statement that will execute with each iteration of the while loop until the loop breaks. Then, there is a final cout statement outside of the while loop.

When we run this code, our output will be as follows –
