Just came across this in a C code apple example:

do
{
  // stuff..
} while (false);

The code breaks the loop when an error occurs inside it. This is kind of like try/catch/finally, where you have a simple catch(…) all block that you jump to if you “break” the loop. It seems like a poor substitute for a function call however.
