( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I missed the 'triple nested labeled goto spaghetti loop' and wound up voting for the simply uninteresting 'labeled block'. My reasoning behind wanting the triple nested goto block is simple enough: if I'm going to be using the construct for the short eternity of my life, I'd better enjoy using it. Just reming yourself that you are going to drive yourself crazy using one looping mechanism, so you'd might as well choose the crazy one.

# why code this (equiv: print $_, "\n" for 1 .. 10;) for my $i (1 .. 10) { print $i, "\n"; } # when you can code this? -- untested, no perl # on current box; probably doesn't do what # the above snippet does, but it's suppose to my $i = 0; ONE: { $i -= (8 - 2 * 2 - 2 * 4); # $i += 4 goto FOUR; TWO: { print $i; THREE: { print "\n"; 10 == $i ? exit() : goto ONE; FOUR: { $i += 3 * -1; # $i -= 3; goto TWO; } } } }
