if there's nothing to do in the else block, then it's a bit pointless to
have one
<input type="checkbox"<? if ($blah)  echo " checked"; ?> value="xxx"
see what I mean?

Subject: [PHP] elseif without else

For any of you PHP legal eagles:

I rtfm'd, but the "elseif" page doesn't say -- is it okay to have

if ($x) {
// do something
} elseif  ($y) {
// do something
} elseif ($z) {
// do something

without a final "else"?  My code works fine -- so I know that you -can- 
do this.  What I was wondering is if this is something that is likely to 
get deprecated at some point in the future.  IOW, is it "legitimate", 
regardless of how it works?



PS: is it bad coding style to do the above?  I'd like comments on that 
too if applicable.  My if statements check for conditions and then set a 
variable, and later in the script if that variable exists then something 
else happens.  Is this "sloppy"?
