 for flow of control
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  control flow
  flow of control
  
      (Or "flow of control") The sequence of
     execution of the instructions in a program.  Control
     flow is linear, executing the instructions in the order they
     were written, unless it is changed at run time by control
     structures such as if statements, loops or goto
     statements).  These high-level language statements are
     translated by the compiler or interpreter into machine
     instructions, most commonly conditional branch
     instructions.
  
     Interrupts and exception handling also change the sequence
     of execution of instructions but are not part of normal
     control flow.
  
     Not to be confused with "{flow control".
