quick question. can you put a range in a switch case or do you have to resort to if statements? like: case 50-100: something; break; case 0-49: something; break; is there a way to do this?

Of course there is a way, but the if is better.


case 0:
case 1:
case 2:
case 3:
/*code that handles 0,1,2,3 */

Kids these days... Spoiled by languages that let you do interesting things with cases. In my day we counted ourselved lucky to have have switch/case at all!

The problem is that C/C++/Java/etc. 'switch' is a potential-optimization tool that looks like a powerful expression idiom, whereas 'switch' in "friendlier" languages is a powerful expression idiom that looks like a potential-optimization tool... I suppose both are possibly dangerous :)
