V2505. MISRA. The 'goto' statement shouldn't jump to a label declared earlier.


This diagnostic rule is based on the software development guidelines developed by MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association).

The use of a 'goto' statement that jumps to a previously declared label obscures the code and, therefore, makes it harder to maintain.

Here is an example of code that will trigger this warning:

void init(....)
{
  ....
again:
  ....
  if (....)
    if (....)
      goto again;
  ....
}

To eliminate the warning, delete the 'goto' statement or rewrite the code so that the 'goto' statement is followed, rather than preceded, by the label it refers to.
