Back to local compiler directives.


The $GOTO directive:

  • determines whether jump commands can be used;
  • knows the ON and OFF switches;
  • defaults to {$GOTO OFF}. That is, no jump commands are allowed;
  • can be enabled if the directive is {$GOTO ON}, the compiler supports the GOTO and LABEL commands;
  • corresponds to the -Sg command line switch.


  {$GOTO ON}

 label TheEnd;

   If ParamCount = 0 then
     GoTo TheEnd;
   Writeln('Parameters were passed on the command line');

Note for inline assembler: If labels are used in the assembly code, the directive {$GOTO ON} must be used.
