I know exactly what you mean. It's fair to put newbies to the test like that and see how they approach a task, and whether they get to the actual result. But asking an experienced programmer is an insult. At the very least they should make sure that the interviewer or whoever else judges your results is equally experienced and able to appreciate what you're doing. And if they don't understand why you chose to approach the problem the way you did, they should be fair enough to ask why you did that, not require you to recreate the exact solution that's on their checklist.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
