A label may refer to any of the following:
1. In general, a label is a sticker placed on a floppy diskette drive, hard drive, CD-ROM (compact disc read-only memory), or other equipment containing printed information to help identify that object or its data.
3. With a chart, a label is any text over a section of a chart that gives additional information about the chart's value. For example, in a pie chart, each section is labeled to give the value of each percentage.
5. In programming, a label is a reference point or command used to move throughout a program. See the goto definition for an example of how this may be used.
6. Label is also an MS-DOS and Windows command line instruction used to change the identity of a hard or floppy disk drive.
