    Question break statement not within loop or switch

    i've been around this compiler error, but can't figure out what's wrong with it:

    Code:
    main()
    
    {
     ....
    
     if (v_type != 'y' && v_type != 'Y')
          break;
    
     ....
    }
    I always get the same error!
    Is it the syntax?

    Cheers,
    Arr

    Show more code (surrounding that statement at least) and also tell us what the error is... don't make us guess.
