— It may recurse btw


For a number of years I have been familiar with the observation that the quality of programmers is a decreasing function of the density of goto statements in the programs they produce.

— But recursion will mean something different with this

— Yes, because it's not really recursion

— Since there is no return value preservation

— Admit, that FP code is hard to decrypt and rebuild, it's easier to modify/understand small chunks with jumps

— And believe me, I know both styles

— That's not an example

— .batches are terrible

— Yes, because they have goto

— No
