C goto statement

goto statement

goto statement in c sometimes called as goto operation in other languages like php.

Why goto Statement

C programming introduces a goto statement by which you can jump directly to a line of code within the same file.

Syntax And Facts

  • The goto statement does not require any condition.
  • The goto statement simply passes control anywhere in a program without testing any condition.

C goto Syntax

Syntax goto Statement

goto Label;
statement n;

goto statement Flowchart

The following flowchart will clearly demonstrate, how goto statement works

goto statement Program

Let's take a look at the goto statement in action. In the following program we will print whether the number is positive or negative using goto statement

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
int num;
printf("Enter a positive or negative integer number:\n ");
if(num >= 0)
goto pos;
goto neg;
printf("%d is a positive number",num);
return 0;
printf("%d is a negative number",num);
return 0;
  • Enter a positive or negative integer number:
  • 2
  • 2 is a positive number


In this program, the user entered number is checked for positive or negative number. If the user entered number is positive, the control is passes to pos : by goto statement. If the user entered number is negative, the control is passes to neg : by goto statement.
