Goto Is simple. By using simple goto statements, you can move anywhere you want to in your code. It can be also used to make functions (Showed in how to make functions).
|Any label that is valid (defined by |
|A pre-defined label that exits the current script of function(same as |
So in other words, if the number the player inserted is 1, it'll go back to the :Name part of the code.
so if the input is equal to 1, go back to the line with :Name
Make Sure if you use this, the word begins with the Colen (:).
echo Hello! pause >nul :Name echo What Is Your Name set /p Input=Name: echo so %Input% Is Your Name, right? echo Rename? echo 1 For Yes echo 2 For No set /p Input=Rename: if %Input%=1 goto Name
@echo off echo 1 or 2? set /p input=Choice: if %input%=1 goto Skip echo You Chose 1 pause >nul echo So time for stuff pause >nul echo Random Stuf pause >nul :Skip echo So that's it. pause >nul
Goto accepts the use of variable value to act as the label to goto.
@echo off echo a = 1 echo b = 2 set /p "foo=Enter option:" goto %foo%
However, you should check the input so it will not go to somewhere that does not exist. Going to an undefined label will terminate your batch script instantly.
