Go Goto statements


Example

A goto statement transfers control to the statement with the corresponding label within the same function. Executing the goto statement must not cause any variables to come into scope that were not already in scope at the point of the goto.

for example see the standard library source code: https://golang.org/src/math/gamma.go :

    for x < 0 {
        if x > -1e-09 {
            goto small
        }
        z = z / x
        x = x + 1
    }
    for x < 2 {
        if x < 1e-09 {
            goto small
        }
        z = z / x
        x = x + 1
    }

    if x == 2 {
        return z
    }

    x = x - 2
    p = (((((x*_gamP[0]+_gamP[1])*x+_gamP[2])*x+_gamP[3])*x+_gamP[4])*x+_gamP[5])*x + _gamP[6]
    q = ((((((x*_gamQ[0]+_gamQ[1])*x+_gamQ[2])*x+_gamQ[3])*x+_gamQ[4])*x+_gamQ[5])*x+_gamQ[6])*x + _gamQ[7]
    return z * p / q

small:
    if x == 0 {
        return Inf(1)
    }
    return z / ((1 + Euler*x) * x)
