in thread GOTO considered (a necessary) evil?

But a redo (just like next and last is just a glorified goto.
I consider this statement blatently false and missleading.
  • redo FOO will only work if the label FOO exists at some surrounding loop block

I consider this statement to be inaccurate and not quite pendantic enough for flaming someone! Observe:

sub bar { no warnings 'exiting'; redo FOO; } FOO: { print "Hey!"; bar(); }
The redo worked and the label did not exist in a surrounding loop block.
