There is no "continue" for switch?

xz
What if I want the following:

vector<intv;

// v is loaded by push_back()

switch( v.size() ) {
case 2:
//do something

case 4:
//somehow delete two element
//and then do the same thing as in case 2

case 6:
//somehow delete two element
//and then do the same thing as in case 4

default:
//...
}
I thought using "continue" to implement this but got this:

continue statement not within a loop

Correct -- continue works for loops by not switches. Fortunately you
don't need anything quite that difficult:

switch (v.size()) {
case 6:
// somehow delete two element (sic)
case 4:
// somehow delete two element
case 2:
// do something
}

If there isn't a break at the end of a block, execution will flow
through to the next block...

well, I gave a case not so tough, what if a case a little tougher?

vector<intv;

// v is loaded by push_back()

switch( v.size() ) {
case 2:

case 4:
//somehow delete two element

case 6:

//and then do the same thing as in case 2

default:
//...

}

i.e. I want to go to case 2 both after I treat the case 4 and case 6.

Or if you _always_ want to delete elements until the size is 2, I
wouldn't use a switch at all.

while(v.size() != 2)
{
// Determine which element to delete
// delete it
}

I believe you should rearrange your clauses and make '6' and
'4' fall through to the '2':

switch (v.size()) {
case 6:
// somehow delete 2 elements
// and FALL THROUGH
case 4:
// somehow delete 2 elements
// and FALL THROUGH
case 2:
// do something
break; // Yes, only here

default:
//...
}

Of course there is a continue for switch (for your example else-thread):

#include <iostream>

void f(uint8_t n)
{
std::cout << n << '\n';
switch(n) {
for(;;) {
case 2:
std::cout << "do_something\n";
break;
case 4:
std::cout << "somehow delete 2 elements\n";
continue;
case 6:
std::cout << "somehow delete 4 elements\n";
continue;
default:
std::cout << "default\n";
break;
}
}
}

int main()
{
f(2);
f(4);
f(6);
f(1);
}

Of course this doesn't do what you what it to do - it doesn't recompute the
label to jump to. Sorry, I'm tired.

Here is the correct solution (I think):

#include <iostream>

void f(int n)
{
std::cout << n << '\n';
for(;;) {
switch(n) {
case 2:
std::cout << "do_something\n";
break;
case 4:
std::cout << "somehow delete 2 elements\n";
n -= 2;
continue;
case 6:
std::cout << "somehow delete 4 elements\n";
n -= 4;
continue;
default:
std::cout << "default\n";
break;
}
break;
}
}

int main()
{
f(2);
f(4);
f(6);
f(1);
}

Truth to tell, I doubt I'd use switch at all for this. Rather, I'd do
something like this:

if (x == 2 || x == 4 || x == 6) {
v.erase(v.begin()+2, v.begin()+x-2);
// do something
}
else
// whatever was in your default.

Of course, you'll probably need to make minor changes to account for the
position in the vector where you want to do the deletion.

Hi Zhang,

It seems you wanna to something like spaghetti code can do. Are you
originally from Basic language? =) I think Junchen's approach is a
right way to do it.

Yes; it works. Although I think using "goto" would have actually been
clearer here... at least with goto you know that it's going to jump
somewhere and you have to look for a label; whereas with your solution
I found that I first consulted the standard to verify that "continue"
was not for "switch" before looking very closely to see the "for (;;)"
hidden in there.
