The goto keywordEdit
The is command finds the label in the code and continues the execution there. Although it can be used to leave a subroutine, the commands die or last are better for this purpose. goto EXPRESSION expects that the EXPRESSION evaluates to a goto label, and tries to find it to continue there code execution.
goto LABEL goto EXPRESSION goto &NAME
goto CONTINUE; CONTINUE: # We come here […] my $i = 1; goto ("FOO", "BAR", "GLARCH")[$i]; FOO: # Code continues here $i = 2; GLARCH: $i = 3;
