I disagree because state-machines need a lot of documentations and flip/flop is well documented in perldoc.

At worst you'll just need to add a link in the comments.

So consequently you use goto instead of loop constructs, to keep it easily portable to assembler? ;-)

    I very rarely use goto, but there are a few cases where it is the correct function to use.

    perl -e 'use MIME::Base64; print decode_base64("4pmsIE5ldmVyIGdvbm5hIGdpdmUgeW91IHVwCiAgTmV2ZXIgZ29ubmEgbGV0IHlvdSBkb3duLi4uIOKZqwo=");'
