php|architect Blog:
GOTO in PHP 5.3 is it Really That Evil?
June 11, 2009 @ 10:28:02

From Marco Tabini (on the php|architect blog) there's his look at GOTO, a new feature to be included in PHP 5.3, and whether its a bad/evil thing have in PHP or not. He talks with two developers about its impact.

GOTO in PHP? Is that possible? It turns out that it is. GOTO is poised to make its official debug in the upcoming 5.3 release of PHP-and the comments are flowing around the Net. We caught up with Sara Golemon, who introduced the construct in PHP, and with Timothy Boronczyk, who made one of the rare level-headed comments about its use, to shed some light on how GOTO will affect the world of PHP.

They look at why GOTO was even on the table for inclusion, how it got started in the PHP code (the target was PHP6) why there's so much controversy over it and how, despite what the naysayers say, it will not be the demise of the language and cause some kind of downward spiral in PHP development.
