+1 for me as well. Publish data -- January 11, 1976??? This may be your father's book (or grand-father in my case). So, don't confuse me with old facts -- buy new ones. Just look to other languages (such as JAVA) for variations in switch. I think php got it right. After all, while(), if(), do/while() and even for() work around the concept of true -- why not switch?
