    nested switch

    Can you have nested switch statements? Will this be just as efficient as IF-Else statements? It sure does look alot neater.

    Cheers!

    e.g
    Code:
    switch(a)
    {
    	case 1:
    	switch(b)
    	{
    		case 'm': do something;
    		break;
    	}
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    }
    there are only 10 people in the world, those who know binary and those who dont

    Yes you can nest switch statements. I think its more effective then else if statements most of the time. Their are times such as comparing multiple things at once where else if is better.
