    Default goto statement

    Hi Gurus,

    I want to transfer control using goto statement. I used this in C++ and in GWBasic to good affect. Please help me with the syntax of goto statement. There are no line numbers with lines of code, how can I just to required line?

    Cheers.

    It would be better if you can design your program so it not need to use a goto statement because it was considered not as a good practice in programming.

    Although goto is a reserved word in Java it is not used in the Java language. But there is a label, an identifier that can be used in conjunction with the break or continue. The purpose of the label it to let an iteration to jump outside of the iteration, it is a bit like goto statement.

    Java Code:
    labelA:
    
    // some loop {
        continue labelA;
    }

    Thanks a lot.
    I think I should avoid it if it not a good programming practice.
