There's no functional difference. Both methods cause the loop to end when "quit" is entered.

You'll find as programs get more complex, there are also more ways to write them. The important things to consider when comparing different methods are:

  1. functionality
  2. readability
  3. maintainability

And in this case, both approaches are similar in all 3 respects so it's basically just "programmer's preference".

Thanks :) .. I love using break; statement
