This paper tries to convince us that the well-known goto statement should be eliminated from our programming languages or, at least (since I don't think that it will ever be eliminated), that programmers should not use it.

Quote
More than 10 years of industrial experience with Fortran have proved conclusively to everybody concerned that, in the real world, the goto is useful and necessary

Quote
I am confident that, 30 years from now, the goto will still be alive

I find it quite frightening, I am aiming to make programming my career and the pace at the digital world changes is insane. It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks, I consider myself extremely computer literate and I pick up things pretty fast but then again...

Still, one day I can see it racing ahead of me. Like last year I was making the move to build a new PC, I spent about £500 on components. After months of research and reading Overclockers.net forum for advice and watching out for deals, I get my PC.

I don't pay attention to that site for 7-8 month, so much shit came out and so much price crashes.
