Reddit.com:
C'mon PHP. At this point, you're almost a parody of yourself
June 09, 2009 @ 16:35:28

Over on Reddit.com today there's an interesting post that kicks off a discussion as to PHP might be a "parody of itself" by making the choice to include "goto" functionality in the upcoming PHP 5.3 release (you can find release candidates here).

If you can manage to overlook the trolling and PHP bashing long enough, though, you'll see an interesting discussion on goto, how its implemented in other languages and even suggestions of how it has proved itself useful in several different languages (C, Lisp, Assembly). If you have the patience to sort through it all, there's some valid points made for both sides of the "goto in PHP" argument - for and against.
