RE: Number of times I've used goto in Perlby Simplicus (Monk)
|on Apr 19, 2000 at 18:51 UTC||Need Help??|
I only used goto once in my life (explicitly)(I'm not counting uses of goto made by others in packages or modules I have included. I'm not a snob, I've just never found it useful. A language construct should clarify, not obfuscate, and goto almost always "spaghettifies" the code.
If someone can come up with an example of an instance where goto is necessary for the purpose of clarification in code, I'd love to see it.
