tyler, this is a horrible example of goto, my friend.
That's what break is for.
Take care,

Subject: Re: help with c++ if test
I really really highly recommend you avoid goto. This isn't basic, and they're 
not very useful except for in some odd cases, far and
few between. Such as jumping out of two nested loops like so:
int i, j;
for (i = 0; i < 100; i++)
for (j = 0; j < 100; j++)
if (i+j == 100)
goto botttom;
//do something here
if you want to compare strings, do something like this:
if (input == "north")
else if (input == "south")
else ...

I'm writing if tests in c++ with the goto command. 
I want to do text games and I'm using these commands for that. 
But it doesn't work, so I must do something wrong. 
Can you give me an example how this is done with a string please?
