Hello again,

OK for the absence of escapes. It's not a big deal.

And thank you for the authorization. I will surely follow your progress.

There is a typo in your goto.b decompilation, an AND operator is missing 
before testing for end of string, here is a patch:

diff --git a/examples/squoze_goto.b b/examples/squoze_goto.b
