Hello Ranchers!
I am trying to understand the labeled break with for loops and I wrote a code to try out various things in terms of where the control is actually transfered to from the labeled break statements.
My conclusion is: Labeled break is only useful in the nested loop situations.
Am I correct? I need your feedback.
Also, please check out the following code. It seems that the comiler is unable to detect/catch a unreachable statement.

CTE- Stands for Compile Time Error
prt method is taken from Bruce Eckel's book.
Looking forward to your input,
If you happen to have a good resource besides the JLS for labeled break/continue statements could you please post them?
Thanks,
Brian

in the Java tutorial there may be something useful too:

Thanks Valentin!
Ranchers - Any thoughts on the uncaught unreachable statement by the compiler?
