Could 'goto' be marked as 'undesirable'?

This is the introduction to goto that I indend to put in the new documentation


The goto flow control statement was added to Euphoria after prolonged discussion.

The goto is often considered to be:

  • Evil.
  • Should be removed from all languages.

Search the internet for "goto evil" and you will find lots of interesting reading.

The reality is that a goto, in a few rare situations, is the best choice.

Do not use the goto and be content that many programmers will support your programming style.

Use the goto, with discretion, and be grateful that Euphoria gives you a choice.
