Hi, I want to do some mapping (/@) related operations since I don't want to use for/while loops because of all the index mayhem. The problem is that I don't need the map operation to continue once some condition is met. Is there a way to stop the mapping operation so it will not continue, thus saving valuable calculation time (since there is no need to continue). for example (not useful though) Print[#]&/@Range[10] and stop printing if #>5 If it isn't possible to do it with map, what are my other options? Thanks, Guy
