for now, Ziron does not support a switch statement, however it is already on my long to-do list, so since you have requested it, i will move it to my priority list and will see when i can get it done.

i've just finished implementing the basic case/switch statement.

Code:
eax = 15;

case (eax) {

  state 1:
    print('test 1\r\n');
    break;
    
  state 5:
    print('test 5 and ');
    
  state 10:
    print('test 10\r\n');
    break;

  default:
    print('Value not found: ', eax:int, '; decrementing value\r\n');
    eax--;
    
}


notice that if default does not contain a break it will run in a loop checking for the value: this is not a bug, it is intented for such usage as above.

so when the default should exit the case, it should contain also a break

Code:
eax = 15;

case (eax) {

  state 1:
    print('test 1\r\n');
    break;
    
  state 5:
    print('test 5 and ');
    
  state 10:
    print('test 10\r\n');
    break;

  default:
    print('Value not found: ', eax:int, '\r\n');
    break;
    
}


for now, case is very minimal it supports only register parameter and numbers states, this will be extended as i further develop Ziron smile

great and well done, Mr. OverHerz.

i have something , if we do not put default statement what will be the behavior of case block?

second as you have mentioned , it must support not registers and numbers only , so we can use
a variable or expirations etc....

without a default, the case statement will just be exited if there is no available state, and yes i will need to add further support for variables and such. But all in good time smile

right now I'm working on some other features smile

ok , some features without full support are better than no features at all.

Hi OverHertz.

what do you think if you replace 'state' keyword to 'As' in case block , i think it will
be more readable ?
