Labeled Statements

To transfer program control directly to a given statement, the statement must be labeled. See Using Labels with the goto Statement and Using Labels in the case Statement.

There are three types of labeled statements. All use a colon to separate some type of label from the statement. The case and default labels are specific to case (or switch) statements:

identifier : statement 
case constant-expression : statement 
default : statement
