select

select keyword

Description

select expr,
  case expr1 then instructions1,
  case expr2 then instructions2,
  ...
  case exprn then instructionsn,
  [else instructions],
end

Notes:

  • The only constraint is that each "then" keyword must be on the same line line as corresponding "case" keyword.

  • The keyword "then" can be replaced by a carriage return or a comma. instructions1 are executed if expr1=expr, etc.

Warning: the number of characters used to define the body of any conditionnal instruction (if while for or select/case) must be limited to 16k.

Examples

while %t do
  n=round(10*rand(1,1))
  select n
  case 0 then 
    disp(0)
  case 1 then
    disp(1)
  else
    break
  end
end
