That's a hell of a twist of my words. Never did I say it takes half your brain to understand, but that someone with half a brain CAN understand..

Let me put it another way since you clearly didn't understand. Switch statements are stupid simple to grasp, unless the person looking at it is a complete idiot -- or, as I also said, completely unfamiliar with the syntax of the language, in which case they oughtn't be poking around the code in the first place.

Obviously we're not going to agree, and that's fine, I don't have to work with you, so your desire to eliminate perfectly useful easily understood elements from code doesn't affect me :)
