All kinds of dialects too, and I've never seen break as a keyword.  C, Python, Perl, sure, even shell scripts, but pascal? Never seen it used before.  Is this a relatively new addition to fpc or something?

I don't remember break NOT being in Pascal. How did you exit a loop otherwise, goto? Break is common in basically all languages now. Can't think of a language I've used without it.
