in thread GOTO considered (a necessary) evil?

I disagree, for the many reasons others have already pointed out. The sentiment that you have to wipe out all gotos at all cost is cargo cult.

[Lady_Aleena]: Well, not much of my code. A few little things people here like. The big things though, the more important to me code, people here seem to loathe.
[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: My early code was pretty horrible... but somewhere early on I learned not to take criticism of my code personally... which was probably a good thing, considering the kind of code I wrote at the time. :\
[Lady_Aleena]: I am hungry, so I'm going to go make something to eat. I hope you figure it out atcroft. Have a nice night!
[atcroft]: I have one script that I have started re-writing several times over the years, and have yet to get it working in a cleaner/better form. (It is some smelly code-I did not even know about hashes at the time I wrote it.)
[atcroft]: Enjoy, Lady_Aleena!
