- Break script flow and go to given label (defined by # - NOT to be confused with SQF's hash sign!)
- Program Flow
- Example 1:

Notes from before the conversion:
- This function works only inside of SQS script.
- The search for labels always begins at the top of the script so that if there are multiple occurrences of a label the first occurrence will always be the one found.
- Because of the searching order, it is faster to place loops which are executed often at the top of a script.
- Labels are not case sensitive.
- Loops which look something like the example below should be avoided as many of them could cause the mission to slow down:
- While it is not required to include a delay in a loop, such a loop without a delay can cause the script to slow the game down, as the loop will be executed many times before the game engine interrupts the script.
- Unless you really want the loop to execute multiple times during a frame, you should include a small delay.
- You would need to have many scripts running for this to be a significant issue.
- Deciding whether to use a script with a loop or a trigger or even a @ statement to detect a condition is a complicated matter and should be subject to experimentation.
