Disallow Labels That Are Variables Names (no-label-var)

Rule Details

This rule aims to create clearer code by disallowing the bad practice of creating a label that shares a name with a variable that is in scope.

The following patterns are considered warnings:

var x = foo;
function bar() {
  for (;;) {
    break x;

The following patterns are considered okay and do not cause warnings:

// The variable that has the same name as the label is not in scope.

function foo() {
  var q = t;

function bar() {
  for(;;) {
    break q;
