NOOOOOOOOOOO NOT THE DREADED GOTO!!!!!

do not use goto!!! unless it is just for debuging.

progamers shode flow not jump. there shode be no need for a goto, a loop shode be able to do whatever is need.

fouther more if you use goto stmanets for asments in school there is a good chanse that you will lose marks becuse it is "bad progaming".


P.S. i am not trying to yell at you or any one i just whont to comuitcate that the goto is allmost all ways bad progaming. the only exption to this i have seen is in c for the swich stament wich uses a break but that is not relay a goto but it is jumping not flowing.

shut up dan, you dont know what you're talking about...

besides, turing doesnt even have a build in goto Sad

as homer stated, go to the link to the loop tutorial. It explains how to use loops to achieve goto effect.

turing doesnt have goto.

now that we got that cleared, it would be easier to have a goto then set up a bunch of loops with flags. I think I used goto in this year's CCC (with C++), I'd have to post up my answers some time soon Confused

well you tacher is wrong... from what I learned from VB... using a goto for error handling is a very good practice

well as i side the goto could be used for debuging, but you relay shode not use it, as it is not need and progames shoded flow not jump! i have done 2 cores at nigare clogae and both time one of the 1st things they say is not to use the goto. also may of the c and c++ books i have reaad also call it the dread goto and say dont use it.

basilck all i am saying is that if you are making a progame for school or for sale you shode stay away from goto.

it is a bad habit progames shode flow, aslways flowing never jumping.
