Did i just use a goto?!?

Well, if you think using a goto is more readable than using another construct, then use it. I have seen code that were emulating goto's, and which were worse, much worse than the same code written with goto's.

I have read somewhere that there was Dijkstra's paper goto considered harmful, ( and then somebody answered with another paper "goto considered harmful" considered harmful. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find it.
