A very simple programming question

OK, real quick, story of my life. I started programming on calculators and I got pretty good at it. I could make all sorts of games, but its a lot (and i mean a lot) less complicated then c++. NOW WITH THE QUESTION. On a calculater you do GOTO 1, and then you make a LBL 1. The question is how to I do something like that with c++?!?!?!?
example on calculator:

If N+M=6
then
goto 1
else
goto 2
Lbl 1
Disp "blah blah blah"
Lbl 2
Disp "BLAH BLAH BLAH"

Now that is just an example on a calculator so please dont correct me if thats incorrect.
HOW WOULD I DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT ON C++

Please reply with statements and examples
thnx.

    First of all, forget what you learned when you learned BASIC! In C and C++ the [b]goto[/b] statement is rarely, if ever, used. Anyone who works for me would be fired if he/she used that in a program!

    There are a lot better ways of coding that
    [code]
    if( (N+M) == 6)
    printf("Sum is 6
    ");
    else
    printf("Sum is not 6
    ");
    [/code]

    one more question, if you have 2 if( statements for example;

    if( (x+y) == 25)
    cout << "Hello"
    cout << "what is 2+2?"
    int t;
    cin << t;
    if( (t) == 4)
    cout << "blah"
    else;
    cout << "BLAH"

    how would you make an "else;" statement for the first "if(", basically im asking wherer would you put it?

    yea, im gettin windows game programming for dummies, lol :-)

    If you have not yet bought it -- don't. You need to learn the language before you can write any games. Get an Introduction to C/C++, or one of the Teach Yourself books.
  • hey man, u can do it in c++ simply...here is an example:

    if(x>10)
    goto label1;//you can use any identifier here instead of "label1"
    .
    .
    .

    label1: //after the identifier name u must type ":"

    //rest of program
    .
    .
    .


  • nah stober,
    thanks for the advice stober, but i already bought it, (xmas). But im gettin really good with programming. I can make great logon screens and simple text games with like over 200 lines. I think having the book will be good for future reference.
