From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) [jargon]:

  break
  
  
      1. vt. To cause to be {broken} (in any sense). ?Your latest patch to the
      editor broke the paragraph commands.?
  
      2. v. (of a program) To stop temporarily, so that it may debugged. The
      place where it stops is a breakpoint.
  
      3. [techspeak] vi. To send an RS-232 break (two character widths of line
      high) over a serial comm line.
  
      4. [Unix] vi. To strike whatever key currently causes the tty driver to
      send SIGINT to the current process. Normally, break (sense 3), delete or
      {control-C} does this.
  
      5. break break may be said to interrupt a conversation (this is an example
      of verb doubling). This usage comes from radio communications, which in
      turn probably came from landline telegraph/teleprinter usage, as badly
      abused in the Citizen's Band craze of the early 1980s.
