    Default Ranging Case Values in Switch Construct


    Is there any way to use a range of numbers as a case value? For example, I need numbers 0 through 59 to perform the same operation. I know it would be easier to use an if statement, but the assignment calls for a switch. Is there any way to write it as:

    public void range(int number) {
    switch(number) {
    case 0 - 59:
    yadda yadda yadda
    }
    }

    Rather than having to code it out case by case like:

    public void range(int number) {
    switch(number) {
    case 0:
    case 1:
    blah blah blah
    }
    }

    I have 100 values to go through in chunks of 10 (except for the 0 through 59). I'm guessing there's no way of doing it, but any help would be appreciated!

    Not without a lot of copy/pasting. if statements are for ranges, switch statements are for specific values.
