Gotos

Gotos are a feature.

It performs a one-way transfer of control to another line of code; in contrast a function call normally returns control.

Languages with Gotos include C, C++, BASIC, Jule

Example from C, C++:
// C/C++ program to check if a number is // even or not using goto statement #include <iostream> using namespace std; // function to check even or not void checkEvenOrNot(int num) { if (num % 2 == 0) goto even; // jump to even else goto odd; // jump to odd even: cout << num << " is evenn"; return; // return if even odd: cout << num << " is oddn"; } // Driver program to test above function int main() { int num = 26; checkEvenOrNot(num); return 0; }
Example from BASIC:
10 REM This BASIC program shows the use of the PRINT and GOTO Statements. 15 REM It fills the screen with the phrase "HELLO" 20 PRINT "HELLO" 30 GOTO 20
