How to break/exit from a each() function in JQuery? [duplicate]

I have some code:

$(xml).find("strengths").each(function() {
   //Code
   //How can i escape from this block based on a condition.
});

How can i escape from the "each" code block based on a condition?

Update:

What if we have something like this:

$(xml).find("strengths").each(function() {
   $(this).each(function() {
       //I want to break out from both each loops at the same time.
   });
});

Is it possible to break out from both "each" functions from the inner "each" function?

If you want to continue instead of break out

return true;

Answer

Return false from the anonymous function:

$(xml).find("strengths").each(function() {
  // Code
  // To escape from this block based on a condition:
  if (something) return false;
});

From the documentation of the each method:

Returning 'false' from within the each function completely stops the loop through all of the elements (this is like using a 'break' with a normal loop). Returning 'true' from within the loop skips to the next iteration (this is like using a 'continue' with a normal loop).

Answer
if (condition){ // where condition evaluates to true 
    return false
}

According to the documentation you can simply return false; to break:

$(xml).find("strengths").each(function() {

    if (iWantToBreak)
        return false;
});
