I found one of them contained about 100 Microsoft GOTO statements!
Was that hand-written code, or decompiled/auto-generated code?

Many sensible high-level patterns get compiled into a mess of goto statements for the low-level code. For example, try decompiling a switch block.

And that's without looking at the native assembly/machine code, where jmp and its variants rule the roost.

You generally don't want goto to appear in the code you need to maintain. But in generated code which isn't meant for human consumption, it's not a problem.
