Sorry for the basic question.

Please review:


1. The value of the switch statement in this case is "true" (it could also be '1'). This is different than what's found in most other case/switch control structures in other languages.

2. Generally you should use functions to process and return values and then decide as to what to do with the results, such as print(). Putting print in functions is fine if the function is supposed to print something.

3. Try to make your variables and function names simple and syntactical -- it will help you later when your code becomes more complex.

Good luck with trying to make a better living programming than driving a truck.

If you want to say thanks for my effort, please answer me this -- with regard to the class you are talking: What is the name of the class? How many credits is it? What's the name of the textbook you are using? And, if there is a syllabus, can I have a copy?
