FORTRAN 77 Language Reference


Execution proceeds as follows:

  1. e is evaluated first. It is converted to integer, if required.

  2. If 1 £ e £ n, where n is the number of statement labels specified, then the eth label is selected from the specified list and control is transferred to it.

  3. If the value of e is outside the range, that is, e < 1 or e > n, then the computed GO TO statement serves as a CONTINUE statement.
