I've got a problem with a shell script I'm writing in that it does everything its supposed to do except it won't exit from sub menus nor will it quit from the script completely when in a sub menu.

Here is what I've done so far. I've redacted parts of it because of work confidentiality:

#!/bin/bash



#Now for the main menu...

while :
do

    clear
    cat<<EOF

I've got one main menu and two sub-menus:

Main menu
 |
 |_____ Site A Sub Menu
 |
 |_____ Site B Sub Menu

With an option (Q) to quit back to the main menu but I can't seem to be able to quit back to the Main menu. I've tried:

break 2 ;;

And:

return ;;

But both don't seem to work at all. The script just loops back around within the same sub-shell.

Any help would be very gratefully received. Thanks!
