Ronnie,

I'd suggest you mark updates as such. Coming to this post the first time I was quite surprised by your apparent vehemence for an initial post. It turned me off (though I saw later that it was a response).

I sort of agree with you -- if a go to function exists and there's a reason to use it, ignore ideology. That said, I've never really had a desire to use a goto statement. Maybe that is inexperience. Though I am quite confused about your rationale; I believe I've written plenty of code that handles job failures just fine without modification and doesn't use goto statements. Your situation could be different, though, and personally I don't care (and won't even think badly of you)if you litter your code with goto's.

I don't think those who've responded with you have been quite as harsh or dogmatic as you seem to think. Maybe you should come back to this thread after a week or so. Forgive me for suggesting how you should respond, but instead of a long diatribe you could have simply said something like "A goto is appropriate for my situation".

And now I've spent enough time looking at this.
