GOTO

To branch unconditionally out of the normal program sequence to a specified line number or label.

Syntax

GOTO location

Comments

location is the line number or label at which execution is to continue.

Early versions of BASIC did not have DO…LOOP, ELSE clauses for IF statements, or SELECT CASE statements. They used GOTO to implement these constructs. To improve your programs’ readability and simplify debugging, the general recommendation is to restrict the use of GOTO.

Example

i = 0
Start:
  PRINT "i ="; i
  INPUT "Again"; reply$
  IF reply$="N" THEN
    END
  ELSE
    i = i + 1
  END IF
  GOTO Start
