Please elaborate on how you got this message? What you have reported now is akin to​:

“My car doesn’t have a direction indicator”.

FWIW, if you were trying to execute the “goto” message on a Label object, the message is correct​: that still isn’t implemented, even on a more recent version like 2017.05.

For further providing you with informations about how to reproduce this NYI bug, I've attached a perl script, that you can test perl6 with.

The attached script below, is meant for a Perl5 goto support, works fine - which means that Perl6 has missed a feature from Perl5.

Thank you for the report. It *is* known that goto is not yet implemented.
That's what the error message is trying to tell you.

which means that Perl6 has missed a feature from Perl5.

It's more difficult to implement it in Perl 6, because we have proper threads and stuff.

I don't think think anyone is currently actively trying to implement it, so it
may take a while before you'll see this feature.

P.S.​: you should upgrade your perl6. It's ancient. While you won't see goto in latest and
greatest compiler, you'll get a whole ton of bug fixes and performance improvements. You
can get the latest version at http://rakudo.org/downloads/star/
