You have the right to disagree, I'm saying this is a case where I see goto have it's usefulness.

Yes you can split into multiple function but sometimes there is 10+ parameters involved and creating subfunction doesn't make it clearer.

I respect your opinion and your strict mode but don't get me wrong... all languages [more or less] have the goto keyword or an equivalent.
