All (well probably many) BA(P)SIC (P for purpose) do that, can get
quite lively since you aren't necesselery sure where 'next i'
will take you on an adequetely badly structured (ie typical)
basic program.

(break isn't traditional though - no definition of the end of
the loop.)

OTOH maybe basic looks as much like the basic I 'learnt' as
modern fortran looks like fortran IV (or even II).
