    Why am I getting this error?

    I am trying to create a simple string switch statement. Now, I know that you can use different variable types for the switch statement, but I keep getting an error that says "switch quanity is not an integer". Isnt it possible to have a "string" switch statement?

    Here is the switch:
    Code:
    string translate( string reg )
    {
        switch (reg)
        {
               case "$t0" :    return "01000";
               case "$t1" :    return "01001";
               case "$t2" :    return "01010";
               case "$t3" :    return "01011";
               case "$t4" :    return "01100";
               case "$t5" :    return "01101";
               case "$t6" :    return "01110";
               case "$t7" :    return "01111";
               case "$t8" :    return "10000";
               case "$t9" :    return "10001";
               case "$a0" :    return "00100";
               case "$a1" :    return "00101";
               case "$a2" :    return "00110";
               case "$a3" :    return "00111";
               case "$v0" :    return "00010";
               case "$v1" :    return "00011";
               default: return reg;
               
        }
    }

    Use a map instead.

    if statements are much simpler.
