In all honesty I did not reread the paper. I posted
based on the recollection that it was the basis for
my feeling no compunction about using reviled gotos
in my C / C++ code to effect multi-level exists and
continuations. When called to task by my peers I
invoke Knuth's name.
Let's chalk it up to the fallibility of memory over
a span of more than 30 years. Thank's for keeping me
honest. I am printing out the paper. Rereading it
should help me recall the state of programming when
I was first starting out.
