On ROOL mouse mat design revealed:

I can understand why they did it, and it is a nice idea. However, I think it looks a bit too busy - I'd get one, but wouldn't use it as a mouse mat :)

HenkJan: I used that book to extend BBC BASIC. It was a very very interesting read.

On BBC BASIC turns 25:

I am fully aware of the "goto considered evil" aspects - but don't forget that line numbers are also used when using DATA statements - you may want to be able to do a RESTORE <label> so you can read from wherever you want to.

I don't think I've used GOTO for well over 15 years, and GOSUB for 20. (I have used a goto in C, but that was as a "finally"-type condition, which is one of the generally accepted exceptions).

But to that extent, I don't recall using RESTORE <n> before either :) (Which doesn't mean to say that it should be removed - I've not used "LET" in BBC BASIC either).
