I don't usually join in these discussions, nor am I claiming that this is the best way to accomplish the task.

However, I see more of a problem with the compiler -- these are not really nested blocks. They are "else if" statements and not really different from a case statement in a switch except that you are using an expression instead of a constant. When I write them, the formatting shows that. Every "else if" is at the same level and there is no nesting.

In C (and C++) you have "#elif", but for some godforsaken reason, you don't have "elif" in the language. This is a missing control structure and why the hell is there any kind of a fixed limit on parsing the language? I seriously doubt that, once parsed, that the control flow graph has any sort of limit, but limits like these are from 30 or 40 years ago. Inexcusable in today's world.
