Scriptol/If Control Structure
If Control StructureEdit
For a conditional process, the statement is a "if" keyword, followed by a boolean expression, a list of statements to execute or no, depending of the condition, and the "/if" keyword.
If x = 5 print "equal" /if
Introducing an alternative by the "else" keyword: when the condition is false, another list of statements may be processed.
If x = 5 print "equal" else print "not equal" /if
When the body of the structure is just one statement, and not another structure, the syntax may be shortened to only a single line.
If x = 5 print x
If the statement is not a command as "print", "break", "continue" etc..., the "let" keyword is required.
If x = 5 let y + 1
The structure may be extended into a more powerful construct that is both an "if" and a "switch case" structure, even more advanced than the C counterpart since you can test any type of variable.
if x = 5: print "equal" > 5: print "more" else print "less" /if
