GOTO(I)                      3/15/72                      GOTO(I)



NAME
     goto  -  command transfer

SYNOPSIS
     goto label

DESCRIPTION
     Goto  is allowed only when the Shell is taking commands from
     a file.  The file is searched from the beginning for a  line
     beginning  with  `:' followed by one or more spaces followed
     by the label.  If such a line is found, the goto command re-
     turns.  Since the read pointer in the command file points to
     the line after the label, the effect is to cause  the  Shell
     to transfer to the labelled line.

     `:' is a do-nothing command that is ignored by the Shell and
     only serves to place a label.
