|GOTO||Unconditionally transfers program control to another statement.|
|target||The label of another executable statement within the PROGRAM, PROCEDURE, or ROUTINE.|
The GOTO statement unconditionally transfers control from one statement to another. The target of a GOTO must not be the label of a ROUTINE or PROCEDURE.
The scope of GOTO is limited to the currently executing ROUTINE or PROCEDURE–it may not target a label outside the ROUTINE or PROCEDURE in which it is used.
Extensive use of GOTO is generally not considered good structured programming practice. LOOP is usually considered a better alternative.
