You presumed that "A Beginner's Guide" meant that it was a book for beginners.... not one written by a beginner. Firstly, while GOTO has a place in programming for certain things, the example (and I can see the difference between the original and your additions) is atrocious, and is not at all representative of any code you would ever, ever want to put into production. That looks like a nightmare of taking a math final, not knowing the answer, and suddenly realizing you're in your underwear --- and have explosive uncontrollable diarrhea on top of it, and your ankles are chained to the chair. Who is the author? I saw one on Amazon by Vikram Vaswani, but there was no use of GOTO that I could find there. I'd like to see what other "tips" are included, or perhaps to see if that code was used in a different context (as in, "what will work, but what not to do anyway," or, "I wrote this on April Fool's Day"). -- </Daniel P.
