A chap called E W Dijkstra made the statement: "Goto statement considered
harmful" and became famous.


And became widely misunderstood. If anybody would read the whole what he wrote, people would learn that he doesn't criticise the *use* of goto, but he wants the *replacement* of goto with something else (like exceptions).

As C doesn't have exceptions, goto is in many cases the simplest and easiest way of handling errors.

Essentially, you can write both good and bad code both with and without goto.
