    Default Help add something to my code please.

    This is part of my code for a simple tic tac toe.

    How can I stop the game from running?


     
     
     
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    /**
       This program runs a TicTacToe game. It prompts the
       user to set positions on the board and prints out the
       result.
    */
    public class TicTacToeRunner
    {
       public static void main(String[] args)
       {
          Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
          String player = "x";
          TicTacToe game = new TicTacToe();
          boolean done = false;
          while (!done)
          {
             System.out.print(game.toString()); 
             System.out.print(
                   "Row for " + player + " (-1 to exit): ");
             int row = in.nextInt();
             if (row < 0) done = true;
             else
             {
                System.out.print("Column for " + player + ": ");
                int column = in.nextInt();
                game.set(row, column, player);
     
     
     
    //add something here to stop?
     
     
     
                if (player.equals("x")) 
                   player = "o"; 
                else 
                   player = "x";    
             }
          }
       }
    }

    You could set done equal to true...
    Or you could use a break statement to short circuit the loop
