in reply to exiting two loop levels

GrandFather and davorg have your answer above. I just wanted to add that it often reads better to label your loops with what they're iterating over, rather than their structure.

For example, say you're processing files and records line-by-line. You could do this:

OUTER: while ( $more ) { INNER: while ( $still_more ) { # ... last OUTER if $done_with_files; last INNER if $done_with_lines; } }
But it reads better with a change in labels:
FILE: while ( $more ) { LINE: while ( $still_more ) { # ... last FILE if $done_with_files; last LINE if $done_with_lines; } }

[choroba]: Good morning, if a bit rainy
[marto]: life is a struggle :P I'm glad the GPW went well.
[Corion]: Hi choroba! Yeah, I brought the rain with me from Hamburg
[Corion]: marto: As am I ;) And we got two interested locations for next year, Munich and Cologne maybe, which is great as well. Not Berlin though ;)
[marto]: damn
[choroba]: Munich is kind of close from here
