    One might argue you need to refactor your code.

    So that it's split into multiple functions and even harder to view and understand?

    Job security FTW! 😉

      No, so that it's easier to understand and to maintain, and so that each function can be unit tested.

      Just use a language other than old versions of old languages like C or FORTRAN and you can have identifiers that actually identify instead of having to guarantee uniqueness of short names. Much easier to read a stack of properly named functions called on properly named arguments than having to keep the entire state of the nested inlined basic blocks in mind.
