Forces a jump to a label, regardless of nesting
  Goto label
The Goto keyword forces a jump to a given label.
It should Never be used in modern code since it makes code very difficult to maintain.
It is mostly used to force a termination of heavily nested code, where the logic to safely exit would be tortuous.
Never jump into or out of try statements, or into a loop or conditional block.
Be careful!
Use with extreme caution and when fully justified.
