  • I don't see why one shouldn't be allowed to do this, as it's not really different from plain calling

    BEGIN {
         &sick;   # or sick();
    }

    As part of the source hasn't been compiled (or parsed) yet, you can only jump — or call — backwards.

    • goto &sub doesn't return to its previous callframe. I'm not quite sure how that pans out during compilation. I think that's part of what's worrying Nicholas. :)
