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.[1][2] In assembly language labels can be the destination of a e.g. JMP.[3] Some languages, such as Fortran and BASIC, support numeric labels.[4] Labels are also used to identify an entry point into a compiled sequence of statements (e.g., during debugging).
