Here is an example from the help browser: In[1]:= q = 2; Label[begin]; Print[q]; q += 1; If[q < 6, Goto[begin]] But note, the same result could have been achieved with q = 2; While[q < 6, Print[q]; q += 1] without the label. Even better using functional programming Print/@Range[2,5] The point is while Mathematica has Goto, it isn't needed in practice. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
