You highlighted "wholly artificial" as if it matters, as if a programming concept could be anything else? It's a funny argument to make.

    It's not the "programming concept" that matters. (Whatever that ethereal phrase may mean to you?)

    It is the wholly artificial distinction between "flow control" and whatever is the complement of that in this context?

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      I make a whole lot of "wholly artificial distinctions". Most people call them "programming styles". Programing styles can be every shade of good and bad, but just pointing out it's a programming style isn't an argument.
