    Using two if statements causes both of them to be evaluated, an if..else if statement will result in only one being evaluated. I've seen quite a few problems fixed simply by changing a series of if statements to an if..else if construct. I'm assuming you mean something like this by the way:
    Code:
    if ( so and so )
      // Do something
    if ( so and so )
      // Do something else
    Compared to:
    Code:
    if ( so and so )
      // Do something 
    else if ( so and so )
      // Do something else
    -Prelude
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    basically, "else if" is skipped when the first condition is true. pretty simple.
