    Default Switch with modulus value

    Hi.

    Kindly help me understand how the output of the switch below became 0 4 9

    for(var i=0;i<10;i++)
    {
    switch(i%5)
    {

    case 2: i*=i;break;
    case 3: i++;break;
    case 1:i+=3;
    case 4:
    i++;
    continue;
    default : break;
    }
    System.out.print(i+" ");
    i++;
    }

    Print the value of i%5 so you can see the value that the switch statement sees.
    Notice the missing break statement for case 1.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
