I made a correction to the handling of case statements. If multiple case labels were in the same case statement, it would previously check only if the first one was already assigned. It will now check whether every single case label has been assigned. If a case label has already been assigned in a switch, it will give an error message.

If a case label includes whitespace, it will now report an error message. This is in case a colon is left off a case statement, and a new line character gets included in the case label.

If a switch statement is passed a value that does not match any of its cases, and it has no default case, it will report an error message that neither the expected case nor a default case exist.

The print statement can now be used to print the value of an array, which will make it more useful for debugging.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
