            if(y>x) // DEAL WITH THE PREVIOUS DETERMINED X AND FINALLY
              {
               Print("y ",y);
               break; // PRINTS Y ONLY ONCE CORRECT
              }

// B:
   for(int x=0; x<100; x++)
      if(x==1)
         for(int y=0; y<100; y++)
            if(y>x) // DEAL WITH THE PREVIOUS DETERMINED X AND FINALLY
               for(int z=0; z<100; z++)
                  if(z>y) // DEAL WITH THE PREVIOUS DETERMINED Y AND FINALLY
                    {
                     Print("z ",y); // PRINT ONLY FIRST Z THAT IS ABOVE Y WHICH IS ABOVE X
                     break; // !!!!! ONLY ONCE THOUGH !!! THIS ONE PRINTS MANY Z's; NOT CORRECT
                    }

//2 versions; A stops at 2 and B does not. Why does the first A only print one iteration of y and the B iterates many iterations of z? I need B. to behave like A and only print ONCE the z value that is larger than x and y
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
Running this you get one y and many zs ; how to just have 1 z above y?

Is this worth it or just have it break and save to variables faster bc break ends the whole loop?
