> Why goto and not continue?
Because goto is much more flexible. For instance, the source code for
Lua has ~14 gotos and only 2 continues.
> Why break can appear middle of block but not return?
Because return may be followed by an optional expression. Something
like 'return a = 3' would confuse the parser.
> Can goto pass though local variable define?
No. See the documentation.
