The switch / case control
Is there a switch / case control in Pliant?
If it exists what is its syntax; if not, then why?

|There is no switch/case at the present moment.
There are two ways of consideing a switch/case construction:
In the later case the switch/case won't be difficult to write and is somehow
a variation of the 'shunt' construction.
- either (this is the original switch/case) the switch is done on a character and the switch case is a kind of optimization corresponding to a computed jump,
- either this is a compact way of writing if/eif/else
