    stopping some scanning

    what is the best way to stop scanning from a for loop.
    i have a trigger that i have to use to stop the scanning but i am unsure how to use it.

    i have to scan a bunch of numbers into an array and use '00000' to stop the scanning of ints and move on, anyone help?
    thanks

    You could use break.
    Code:
    for(i=0;i<1000;i++){
    if(x==5){
    break;
    }
    //More code
    }
    The break will exit out of the for loop.

    thank you

    know another problem i am having is, i have stored the data in the array.

    how do i go about adding all the individual numbers in the array.

    here is what i tried

    Code:
     for (row = 0; row < numofInts; row++)
                    {
                    sumofInts += numbers[row];
                    }
