I’ve been reviewing list of changes in PHP 5.3 and one thing captured my attention – for some reason they decided to add “goto” in PHP. I won’t even bother to look for rationale after that decision, I can bet it looked like:
– should we add goto support in PHP?
– no, it’s bad!
– yes, it’s useful when you don’t abuse it!
– if you can’t code without goto, you’re pathetic caricature of programmer
– real programmers KNOW how to use goto properly
And so on for 5000 posts…
At least they added some small advice from xkcd on their goto manual page…
