PHP Switch Statement

The PHP switch-case statement is an alternative to the if-elseif-else statement. PHP switch statement is used to execute one statement from multiple conditions.

switch(…){…} is the control structure block code

case value : case… are the blocks of code to be executed depending on the value of the condition

default : is the block of code to be executed when no value matches with the condition

Syntax
switch(expression){      
case value1:      
 //code to be executed  
 break;  
case value2:      
 //code to be executed  
 break;  
......      
default:       
 //Code to be executed if all cases are not matched;    
The following example of switch statement.
