Swift Language Using the where statement in a switch


Example

The where statement may be used within a switch case match to add additional criteria required for a positive match. The following example checks not only for the range, but also if the number is odd or even:

switch (temperature) {
      case 0...49 where temperature % 2 == 0:
        print("Cold and even")

      case 50...79 where temperature % 2 == 0:
        print("Warm and even")

      case 80...110 where temperature % 2 == 0:
        print("Hot and even")

      default:
        print("Temperature out of range or odd")
}
