GOTO Statements in Linux Kernel Source
GOTO Statements in Linux Kernel Source

If you are a student you may come across a term called structured programming. Which actually means you write a smooth flow of code and whenever required you steer the flow of code via APIs (i.e functions) (either internal helper APIs or external APIs). As a part of structured programming paradigm it is highly discouraged to use goto statements in the code.

But if you look at Linux Kernel source-code you find almost everywhere goto statements. Here is my detailed YouTube video in which I discuss the reasons why goto statements are used in Linux Kernel source. And I also share some insights where it is highly advantageous to use goto statements in a serious company production code. Provided you know these reasons and tricks 🤗
