Switch Break print question.

Why is it that when i execute my code the outout does not fully show all of the other statements, as indicated in the further reading that it should.

Notice the usage of the break statement in each of the cases. This is because, once a matching case is found, not only are its statements executed, but so are the statements for all following cases:

 int x = 0;
 switch (x)
     case 0:
       puts ("x is 0");
     case 1:
       puts ("x is 1");
       puts ("x is something else");

The output of that example is:

 x is 0
 x is 1
 x is something else
