I want that the code will break lop or return from a function with certain value

Exit is not good - it terminate the entire program

Func Function1()
    HotKeySet("^p", "Function2")
    $flag = 1
    while ( $falg == 1) 
    ;; Do whatever you want in here
     ;;
     ;; I Want that Function2 will somehow send 'break' or cause the lop to end    - or even the function to return with some status
     ;;  'exit' is not good  - it terminate the entrire program. 
    Wend
    HotKeySet("^p", "")
EndFunc

Func Function2()
    ????
EndFunc

Geosoft has just about handed you the solution on a plate :). The hotkey can set a global variable in the function it calls and he has even given you the $flag variable to use. All you need to do is to make sure that $flag is global and set it in the hotkey function.

Global $flag

Func Function1()
 HotKeySet("^p", "Function2")
 $flag = 1
 while ( $flag == 1) 
 ;; Do whatever you want in here
 
 Wend
 HotKeySet("^p", "")
EndFunc

Func Function2()
 $flag = 0
EndFunc

First , that is much better solution , thanks

Second , let make the problem a bit harder..

I want to exit the lop - in the minute the hotkey was pressed - and not only in the beggining of the lop

the global flag is good and elegant when I have one simple command . but if the proccess is more complecated then I need to had "if ($flag == 1)" before each command or at list before each major command ( for example in command 3 )

When the program is become long and complicate the flag is not such nice solution

Global $flag

Func Function1()
 HotKeySet("^p", "Function2")
 $flag = 1
 while ( $flag == 1) 
 ;;set of commands 1
;;set of commands 2
if ( $flag == 1) then
   ;;set of commands 3   ;; that ugly 
Endif
;;set of commands 4
 
 Wend
 HotKeySet("^p", "")
EndFunc

Func Function2()
 $flag = 0
EndFunc
