    goto sucks instead of "GOTO" use functions....such as main();
    to exit you can use system("cls"); or exit(0); with a stdlib.h header file in the includes...

    both syntax works on Dev-C++ 4.9.9 or Visual 2005

    use functions....such as main();
    don't give wrong advices.
    1. main is special function that should not be called directly from the code
    2. using recursion to emulate loops - bad idea - stack size is not infinite
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    There are only a handful of reasons to use goto. None of them I appreciate much except the one about text parsers.

    Search the forums for this keyword. There's heaps of posts about it.
