how to use switch case for a range of number in PHP?

Example 1

Posted October 10, 2012
Hi, I'm struggling with this particular use of a switch statement.

I'm trying to use a case that is a range of numbers.

Seems to work alright, until you change the variable $number to 0 (ZERO).


switch ($number) {
case $number >=0 && $number <=10:
 print "The number is between 0 and 10";

 case $number >=11 && $number <=20:
 print "The number is between 11 and 20";

 print "Your number is not between 0 and 20";


Example 2



switch ($i) {
case 0:
echo "i equals 0";
case 1:
echo "i equals 1";
