Let’s see the simple example of goto statement in C++.

 
  • #include <iostream>  
  • using namespace std;  
  • int main()  
  • {  
  • ineligible:    
  •          cout<<“You are not eligible to vote!\n”;    
  •       cout<<“Enter your age:\n”;    
  •       int age;  
  •       cin>>age;  
  •       if (age < 18){    
  •               goto ineligible;    
  •       }    
  •       else    
  •       {    
  •               cout<<“You are eligible to vote!”;
