int main()
{
   /*  Some code here */

   GOTO MyLabel;

   /* Some code here */

   MyLabel:

   /* Some code here */

   return 0;
}

Sorry,
  "GOTO" should be "goto"

However,
  I must say you should almost never use goto in C unless you are breaking out of some horrible nested loop or something like that.

Lockias, you *almost ever* have to use goto even in C when programming something like stated loops, finite state machine, etc.
