The important thing with goto is knowing when not to use it - which is most of the time. Laugh | :laugh:

Goto has its place, but if you can use a structured loop or branch instead then your code is generally cleaner and more maintainable. But very occasionally, using a goto makes your code cleaner or much more efficient and (provided it's well documented) isn't a problem.
It's a problem when it's used because they can: and teachers who introduce it early should be hung, drawn, and quartered (and I don't mean "well hung", "sketched", and "given an apartment").
