Label (programming language)
From Seo Wiki - Search Engine Optimization and Programming Languages
A label in a programming language is a sequence of characters that identifies a location within source code. In most languages labels take the form of an identifier, often followed by a punctuation character (e.g., a colon). In many high level programming languages the purpose of a label is to act as the destination of a
GOTO statement. In assembly language labels can be the destination of a e.g.
JMP. Some languages, such as Fortran and BASIC, support numeric labels. Labels are also used to identify an entry point into a compiled sequence of statements (e.g., during debugging).
