Synopsis

[address1[,address2]]b[label]

Transfer control unconditionally to :label elsewhere in script. That is, the command following the label is the next command applied to the current line. If no label is specified, control falls through to the end of the script, so no more commands are applied to the current line.

Example

Ignore lines between those that begin with .TS and .TE; resume script after .TE:

                  /^\.TS/,/^\.TE/b
