Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Compact Your Code Using IIF and Switch

You can often replace an If...Then...Else block with a more compact IIf function:
' returns the max of two values
maxValue = IIf(first >= second, _
	first, second)
Switch is a rarely used function, yet in many cases it proves rather useful as a substitute for a lengthy If...ElseIf block:
' is "x" negative, positive or null?
Print Switch(x < 0, "negative", x > 0, _
	"positive", True, "Null")
Note the last test is True, because the three conditions are mutually exclusive and exhaustive.
