As a previous user of line-numbers in a big way, let me say that I agree with Bob on this one. I have not really used line-numbers for quite a while now, and no line-numbers is actually easier to program in then with line-numbers, IMHO.

Once you get the hang of structured programming and labels, line-numbers become un-necessary.

Again - MHO only.

But this vote to drop line-numbers is coming from someone who wrote all his code with line-numbers for years, but now I don't, and I can see the advantages now, whereas before, I would not consider a language that did NOT have line-numbers.

...oh, how I was led astray...
