Chapter 6. Statements
A statement specifies one or more actions to be performed, such as assigning a value to a variable, passing control to a function, or jumping to another statement. The sum total of all a program's statements determines what the program does.
Jumps and loops are statements that control the flow of the program. Except when those control statements result in jumps, statements are executed sequentially; that is, in the order in which they appear in the program.
