    Default If statements

    Does this count as a single if statement or two?
    if (condition){
       statement
    }
    else if (condition){
       statement
    }
    else{
       statement
    }

    Any help appreciated

    Default Re: If statements

    Depends what you mean by single if statement.

    Some people consider a "single if statement" to be an if statement with only one statement, where you wouldnt need the brackets to run that statement:
    if(condition)
         statement;
    else
         statement;

    Others could take "single if statement" as a check where there is no else condition:
    if(condition)
    {
         statement;
    }
    //continue with program

    Other still could consider a "single if statement" as a situtation with no nested if statements, which is what you have above. And still others could consider a "single if statement" as a situation with no else if statements. I dont think the term "single if statement" has a definitive meaning.
