in reply to cross scope gotos?

what exactly is dynamic scope?

From perlsub:

A "local" modifies its listed variables to be "local" to the enclosing + block, "eval", or "do FILE"--and to any subroutine called from within that block. A "loc +al" just gives temporary values to global (meaning package) variables. It does not cr +eate a local variable. This is known as dynamic scoping.

I think this explains the visibility of the labels too.
