in reply to GOTO considered (a necessary) evil?

I know of at least one general discussion on using GOTO (Would you use 'goto' here?), although I would guess there are likely more buried around here somewhere.

I can see your use for it, but would be concerned that the way you coded it could perhaps cause an endless loop (although I will assume there is additional code that was excluded from the example to prevent this). To me, though, both are about equally as readable.

Just my opinion, though, and I look forward to seeing the responses of others regarding the issue.

Update: Actually, looking at both solutions, both tend to suggest that a continuous loop might be possible (or am I reading those wrong?).
