Break

Published: April 17, 2012

Updated: April 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows Vista

Sets or clears extended CTRL+C checking on MS-DOS systems. If used without parameters, break displays the current setting.

noteNote
This command is no longer in use. It is included only to preserve compatibility with existing MS-DOS files, but it has no effect at the command line because the functionality is automatic.

break=[on|off]

If command extensions are enabled and running on the Windows platform, inserting the break command into a batch file enters a hard-coded breakpoint if being debugged by a debugger.
