haxeBranching


Syntax

  • if (condition) { ... }
  • if (condition) { ... } else { ... }
  • if (condition) { ... } else if (condition) { ... } else { ... }
  • // Braces are optional for single line statements
    if (condition) ... else if (condition) ... else ...
  • switch (expression) { case pattern: ... default: ... }
  • condition ? expression if true : expression if false;

Remarks

All branching expressions make it possible to return evaluated expressions. This means branching results can be assigned to variables. In this case, all expressions that can be evaluated by a successful condition test must pass type unification. If no else expression is given, the type is inferred to be Void.
