in thread Number of times I've used goto in Perl
Ok, perhaps the question should read: "How many times have
you inserted the 'goto' keyword into one of your scripts?"
CGI.pm and most others simply use the goto as part of the
AUTOLOAD feature, so I let them slide....but, glancing through
the standard modules, there are some exceptions: sigtrap.pm,
autouse.pm, and (oh no!) even good old Carp.pm use 'goto'
as a way of reaching another part of their script. Bleh!
I'm still at 'never.'
