Hi,

Not that I use it much, but while writing data generation code for testing I found the labelled break quite useful. I didn't see any mention of it in the book. Could you add it?

ref:
"We can label any statement with a name. Labelling a while loop lets any arbitrarily deep nested statement break out of or continue on from it:"

Thanks

6.4.1 Normal termination: return/break/continue
covers this to some extend but we kept the coverage short to not put too much emphasis on it.

Thanks a lot for posting
