GoTo. One of the curses of Basic, the GoTo.
When used by newcomers (and a few some old hands too) a
Basic program would soon become an unstructured mess of
GoTo's and a hassle to debug. One of our Pascal lecturers was
very anti-Basic and forbade us to use it, or to even talk about it
in his presence.
Thank you Tom and Jonathon for the memory,

I remember learning one form of basic in the 80s and that was pretty easy
There is a book from the early/mid eighties, that is simply lists the
vocabulary of the various dialects of BASIC in use then. IIRC, it was
called _The BASIC Book_. It was written specifically for programmers to
port software between the various systems that were available.
Back then, all variants of basic used line numbers, and allowed GoTo.
Today, several variants of BASIC don't use line number, and some
variants don't have GoTo.
