Do nothing, successfully.
In the old MS-DOS operating system, the break command would set or clear extended Ctrl-C checking. Under Microsoft Windows the command has no effect, but can be a useful no-op command.
On the command line, BREAK will produce a new line, in a batch file it does not.
BREAK is an internal command.
Read, but do not display a file:
C:\> Type demo.txt | break
Run an echo command without displaying anything:
C:\> echo Hello | break
Create an empty file:
C:\> break > EmptyFile.txt
