C Basics - The goto Statement in C

The goto statement allows to take the control where you want. A goto statement in C programming provides an unconditional jump from the goto to a labeled statement in the same function.

The syntax for a goto statement is,

goto label;
label: statement;

Here label can be any plain text except C keyword and it can be set anywhere in the C program above or below to goto statement.

#include <stdio.h>
int main () {

   int i = 1;

   LOOP:do {
      if( i == 5) {
 goto LOOP;
      if( i == 8) {
        goto END;
      printf("value of i is: %d\n", i);
   } while( i < 10 );
 printf("Ending execution");

   return 0;

Output of above program,

value of i is: 1
value of i is: 2
value of i is: 3
value of i is: 4
value of i is: 6
value of i is: 7
Ending execution
