I have a situation like this:

var test = true; 
If (test) goto label;

label:
     //more code here.....


The problem is, I want to refer to label declared after. I know goto is advised to not use today, but in my in-house esoteric language, it's everywhere and we have to use it pretty often.

EDIT: It works now. For some reasons, when I first try the code above, it could not resolve the reference to the labels. Sorry about this topic.

Parsing is done before linking; you can link elements independently of
where they are.
