    No no no. The modern, structured replacement for GOTO (long jump) is exceptions.

    while(1) { # eternal ... if ( -T _ ) { # terminal. yuk yuk die "OUTAHERE"; # or croak } }

    But that would imply a return...

    or maybe goto &heaven containing an infinite loop? So death is just a form of AUTOLOAD.
