      Suggestion:  Think LISP.

      Subject: [midatlanticretro] Interesting Commodore BASIC competition


      The guy who created this competition says:


      As you all know, the use of GOTO is frowned upon by all right thinking programmers. [1] http://xkcd.com/292/

      So I am running a competition to see who can create the best C64 application without GOTO


      1) no use of USR,SYS, RUN,GOTO or IF/THEN<linenumber>
      2) all code must fit on the screen when you do a LIST (which means you have up to 23 screen lines of code - READY / new line will take up the last 2 lines)
      3) it must be possible to type in your program from a LISTing (i.e. no m/l appended to the end of a BASIC file)
      4) program must scroll the text "GOTO CONSIDERED HARMFUL" continuously until a key is pressed
      5) anything not specifically prohibited is allowed.


      I won’t have time to do this, but it’s kind of a fun idea !
