for transfer of control
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :
transfer of control
To cause execution of a program to continue
from a different address instead of proceding sequentially to
the next instruction. This may happen as a result of a jump
instruction or some kind of interrupt.
This term is more common when discussing machine code, the
high-level language equivalent is a goto statement.
