I'm writing a simulation program where if something happens, I want to jump out of a set of nested loops and go to the next replication. Is there a short cut for putting -continue, break- in every nested loop?

When I learned Fortran with numbered program lines (cards, actually, this was 36 years ago!), I could just write "GO TO 100" which meant go to line 100. Is there anything similar in Stata?

Many thanks,

Laura
