Join Scott Gardner for an in-depth discussion in this video Use labels, part of Swift 3 Essential Training: Beyond the Basics.
- [Instructor] Looping unconditional statements…can be labeled and used in conjunction…with the continue or break control transfer statements.…To transfer program flow to specific labeled statements,…I'm starting off with the variable i equal to zero…and a string constant hello equal to Hello, playground!…I'll write a do statement,…and in it first I'll increment i by one.…Then I'll nest another do statement…to create a nested scope.…
And in the nested do I'll print hello.…And I'll follow that with an if statement…to check if i is less than three.…If i is less than three, I want control to transfer it…back to the start of the outer do statement.…To do this, I'll first add a label to that do statement…by writing a label name I want to use, followed by a colon.…Then I'll add a continue control transfer statement…with the label I want to continue to.…
And in the console you can see that hello…is printed three times.…In essence I've created a loop…without writing a single loop statement.…
