I am trying to compile the create op code example in here Create new contract via .call(). But it fails:

execute.sol:17:19: Error: Identifier not found. jumpi(invalidJumpLabel,iszero(extcodesize(addr)))

Looks like invalidJumpLabel mysteriously disappeared from the solidity docs from 0.4.9 to 0.4.10. Couldn't find anything in the solidity git history referencing such changes. Any idea how I can get that contract compiling with the same functionality? Is there a new label other than invalidJumpLabel I can use?

Your question got me curious, so I dug around the Solidity repo. Turns out that feature was introduced in Nov 2016, and pulled a few months later, in Apr 2017.

$ git clone https://github.com/ethereum/solidity
$ git log -S invalidJumpLabel --source --all

Remove error label / invalid jump label.

Rename ErrorTag to invalidJumpLabel in inline assembly

If you check the tests in InlineAssembly.cpp, you will also see:

    CHECK_ERROR("{ jump(invalidJumpLabel) }", true, DeclarationError, "Identifier not found", true);

So, it appears this feature is no longer available.
