Re: [Vala] Small syntax request labeled loops

2008/6/30 Dov Grobgeld <dov grobgeld gmail com>:
A small syntax enhancement borrowed from Perl that I would like to see in
vala is labeled loops, that can be referenced in continue and break
statements. Here is an example:

while(foo) {
    for (int i=0; i<1000; i++) {
        if (a)
            break pixels;
        if (b)
            continue pixels;

See the "last" and "next" statements of perl for a larger example.

Why not just ask for goto, that seems to be what you really want.
