	int quitCount = 0;
	for (string s : v) {
		if (s == quit && quitCount < quitNum) {
			quitCount++;
			cout << s << "\n";
		}
		else if(quitCount == quitNum) {
			return;
		}
		else {
			cout << s << "\n";

}

int main()
try

	print_until_ss(alphabet, "c", 2);
	keep_window_open();
}
catch (runtime_error e) {
	cout << e.what() << "\n";
