switch statement

Here are explanations of the switch statement and some control flow-related concepts:

Switch Statement

The "switch statement" in JavaScript is a control structure that allows you to select one of many code blocks to execute based on the value of an expression. It's a more concise way to handle multiple conditions compared to using multiple "if" and "else if" statements.


switch (expression) {
    case value1:
        // Code to execute if expression === value1
        break;
    case value2:
        // Code to execute if expression === value2
        break;
    // ... additional cases
    default:
        // Code to execute if no case matches
}

The "break" keyword is used to exit the "switch" block after a case is matched and executed. This prevents the execution of subsequent cases unless "break" is omitted, which can lead to "fall-through" behavior.

Control Flow Statements

While there are no distinct "jump statements" in JavaScript, there are various control flow statements that determine the execution order of your code:

These statements collectively manage the flow of execution within your JavaScript code, allowing you to create complex and dynamic behaviors.
