Last night I stumbled upon this speech by Doug McIlroy at Dijkstra's retirement banquet @ UT Austin where he tells the story of his first encounter with EWD and the origins of programming without goto.... Given that we recently had a discussion on "Goto considered harmful", you all may enjoy it. Make sure you watch the start of part 10 as well as that is where the story ends.

I have gone down the rabbit hole of this and I can not thank you enough.

An intracardiac heart injection of adrenaline!
(Later medical studies seem to contradict the original thinking of
its usefulness i have heard (a bit).)

  #?141|kent:plan9port.git$ git grep goto master|wc -l
...
  echo 2MzQ1Mwo= | openssl base64 -d

(Obscured for the highly sensitive (the "h" in "tuhs") among the
audience.)
