Scilab Help >> Scilab > Control flow > elseif


keyword in if-then-else


If there is more than one condition then keyword elseif is useful. If there is more than one elseif then the first true condition is selected (even other also are true).


if a==1 then
    disp("a equals 1")
elseif a==2 then
    disp("a equals 2")
elseif a==1 & a>0 then
    disp("this condition is true, but never will be selected, because it is the second true condition.")
    disp("Case not handled.")
