    The Goto Staetment

    hi all ,
    i have a question about the goto statement;
    when execute it does it break the loop;
    for example

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    main()
    {
            int f;
    
    
                   for(f=0;f<10;f++)
                    {
    
                             if(f==5)
                            {
                            goto here;
    
                            }
                    printf("%d\n",f);
    
                    }
    
    here:{
                 printf("The End\n");
         }
    }
    when i execute it
    C@St0rM-MaN:~/Desktop/c# ./goto
    0

    So you proved it breaks the loop, but you want to know if it breaks the loop?

    kind of stupid i know
    but i just want to make sure that's there is nothing wrong with my code
    it's better than not asking and just ignore it
    by the way : it's 5 am now and i haven't sleep yet

    Your view of what happens is correct; goto breaks from the loop.

    The usage of goto is extremely discouraged, however. For learning what it is and what it does, I'm not in objection to. For real usage in real programs, I would suggest other tools be employed other than goto.

    For similiar code in the real world you do not use 'goto'. You would just use 'break'.
