    need a bit of help

    when you type something like that
    Code:
    placeholder:
    -what is it called?


    -does this make it go back to that line of code by typing this,ir am i confused?
    Code:
    goto placeholder;

    one last thing..
    when you do type it, do you include a semicolon to the line?
    Code:
    placeholder:
    // OR
    placeholder:;

    That's cause people don't teach them. Goto statements are the kind of things that appear to make things a lot easier because they're so straight forward. They aren't though.

    Just try and remember yourself as a brand new programmer. I'm sure at some point you wondered "Ok... I got this answer, but I wanted this to happen... so how do I goto this part again?"

    I guess the moral to this is... don't smoke crack.
    ... or use goto statements.

    goto is old old school
    It is still in C++ for legacy purposes I believe.
