OT_Electrical Question

my house is 60 years old and while replacing a switch I see that the hot wire of one wire is looped around the terminal screw on the switch and then goes on to pigtail to a second wire coming into the box. I haven't found anything in the books I have that speak to if this is allowed under the current NEC. So, first is this allowed under current code and if the code doesn't say anything about it would an electrician today still do this. Thanks to all you professional and semi professional electricians.
