Goto – Good or evil?

Found a good article on the use of goto statements in the languages while, I was following up with posts on stack overflow. Here is a stack overflow post named Goto still considered harmful. It has some interesting discussion but I also found two articles by two great computer scientists discussing it in detail.

  1. Dijkstra's Letters to the editor: go to statement considered harmful
  2. Structured Programming with go to Statements
They have some interesting facts and information as to where goto is good and where is it harmful? A good reading nevertheless.

Visit XKCD for more comic.
Linus (Linux Fame) also had something to share on goto here
