PHP Switch Statement
You must have used a lift which is used to go up and down a building, all you have to do is press the button with the floor number where you want to go, or a TV remote, using which you can change the channel on your TV just by selecting that channel number on the TV remote.
switch statement is used to perform different actions, based on different conditions.
switch statement, we can specify multiple conditions along with the code to be executed when that condition is true, thereby implementing a menu style program.
// execute this code when X=value1
// execute this code when X=value2
// execute this code when X=value3
/* execute this when X matches none of
of the specified options */
You can specify as many options as you want using a single
switch code block.
X can be a variable or an expression.
switch statement, we provide the deciding factor which can be a variable or an expression to our switch statement, and then we specify the different cases, each with a value, a piece of code and a break statement.
break statement is specified to break the execution of the switch statement once the action related to a specified value has been performed.
If we do not specify a
break statement, then all the switch cases, after the matched case, will get executed, until the next
The default statement is executed if no matching case is there.
$car = "Jaguar";
echo "Audi is amazing";
echo "Mercedes is mindblowing";
echo "Jaguar is the best";
echo "$car is Ok";
Jaguar is the best
