Originally my inbox
I'm still looking, but I did just find a reference where a programmer
used goto in several spots to avoid calling a subroutine in the code.
Basically goto was used in several "case" statements to have
execution fall through to right after the cast statement -- kind of a
way of building in multiple "default" statements.
base = 10;
base = 16;
base = 2;
base = 8;
/* program continues */
I'm not sure if this is what I was referring to (I don't think it
is), so I'll keep looking.
