GOTO Statement Definition/Meaning:
A branch instruction
in a high-level language. It causes the normal flow of control to be broken by
designating an explicit successor statement, usually identified by a label, e.g.
Modern programming practice deprecates the use of GOTO since its use makes
programs more difficult to follow, the flow of control being less visibly
explicit. GOTO is, however, sometimes unavoidable, particularly in error
situations where it is necessary to abort execution of a number of nested loops
or procedures, when the language does not provide for exceptions.
