in thread something like switch(case) in Perl

As a word of caution, Switch is *not* a great module; yes, it replicates what C has, but it's not efficient nor impervious to bugs. As I believe the lastest word on Perl 6 from Larry has implied, the lack of a good switch block in Perl 5 is very much apparent.

Keep this in mind when working with this. Switch might work, but be prepared to find weird things happening if you ask it for too much.
