That was what exceptions were designed to do.

You obviously never programmed Fortran then. The basic looping construct specified a line number which would be the end of the loop and that line number could contain a regular statement, with no indication that the next statement to be executed was probably not the statement immediately below.

Not never programmed Fortran, just have forgotten absolutely every detail I once learnt!

I did a lot of coding in Fortran. The GOTO was the only way of looping (at least in Fortran-66 or whatever-it-was) so you had to use it.

But, honestly, you could write some truly appalling code in Fortran.
