Unconditional Control Transfer Statements in C

Unconditional Control Transfer Statements is used to transfers the control to some other place in the program. In C Programming Language, There are four types of unconditional control transfer statements.

  • goto
  • break
  • continue
  • return

1. goto statement: The goto statement is used to transfer the control from one part of the program to another. It has the following syntax :

- - - - - - - - - - -
goto display;
- - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - - - -
display;
- - - - - - - - - - -

when this statement is executed, the control is transferred to the statement lebel display which is followed by a colon.

2. break statement: The break statement is used to transfer the control to the end of a statement block in a loop. It is an unavoidable statement to transfer the control to the end of a switch statement after executing anyone statement block. It has the following syntax :
break;

3. continue statement: The continue statement is used to transfer the control to the beginning of a statement block in a loop. It has the following syntax:
continue;

4. return statement: The return statement terminates the execution of a function, it returns control to the calling function. It resumes the execution in the calling function immediately.
It has the following syntax:
jump instruction or statement:
return expression;
