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, (http://www.acm.org/classics/oct95/) and then somebody answered with another paper "goto considered harmful" considered harmful. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find it.

    [marto]: configure whatever client you use to use a repositry you like?
    [Corion]: usemodperl: Why would you want HTTP there? If you want/need to use wget without SSL libraries, set www.cpan.org (or whatever) as your uplink?
    [marto]: I suspect more trolling...
    [usemodperl]: Because the audience for my apps have old, locked down versions of perl that can't install modules or update perl and now all that is horribly broken without HTTP. Of course I can go outside Perl anytime but that impacts portability
    [usemodperl]: I can find cpan mirrors on http but not with plain files, only tar.gz, does something like meta exist on http?
    [marto]: run your own mirror minicpan
    [marto]: or just fatpack/package your apps
    [Corion]: usemodperl: No. I think your approach to "downloading modules" is horribly misguided. I recommend you use the standard tools, and/or move your own tools to standard interfaces. Or maybe just set up your own plaintext mirror if that's what you need.
