Perl – How to break out of a loop in Perl

breakloopsperlstrict

I'm trying to use a break statement in a for loop, but since I'm also using strict subs in my Perl code, I'm getting an error saying:

Bareword "break" not allowed while
"strict subs" in use at ./final.pl
line 154.

Is there a workaround for this (besides disabling strict subs)?

My code is formatted as follows:

for my $entry (@array){
    if ($string eq "text"){
         break;
    }
}

Oh, I found it. You use last instead of break

for my $entry (@array){
    if ($string eq "text"){
         last;
    }
}
