Case Decision


Author: Jerry Chae


Description

This plugin brings more smartness to your bot --- It features a decision-making mechanism based on multiple datapoints. It takes one or many statements (expressions) as input. It computes and summarizes which statements are True and returns the summary as output. This not only replaces conventional “if-then-else” sequence in coding but also introduces capabilities to reach decisions after considering various conditions.


Restrictions

Up to version 3.916.1000, the total number of characters in the Expression section cannot exceed 256.

May you search all operations,




Input (Required)

  • Expression --- at least one


Output/Return Value

  • Character String of Index(s) of the TRUE expressions
  • When there is no TRUE expression, the plugin returns 0

 

How does it work? A simplified example is below.


Expressions

  1. Product is Apple
  2. Product is Wine
  3. Origin is Washington
  4. Origin is Oregon


When you have an apple from Washington, you receive [1,3]

When you have a wine from California, you receive [2]

When you have an orange from Florida, you receive [0]

 

Numeric value can be used!


Both integer and float values can be used in the expression statements

Integer: 1, -2

Float: 12.34, -1.23, .0001


Values a automatically and intelligently converted into appropriate type at the time of execution.


If String is compared against numeric values, then the numeric values will be regarded as string. 


Supported Formats

 

Note 1) It is optional to have one space before/after an operator (a symbol between values).

Note 2) If a variable is empty, then [{{my.a}} !=] will return TRUE. However, [{{my.a}}== ] returns false because there is a space after ==.

 

Equal To

String = String

Numeric = Numeric

String == String

Numeric == Numeric


Not Equal To

String != String

Numeric != Numeric

String <> String

Numeric <> Numeric


Greater Than

String > String

Numeric > Numeric


Greater Than or Equal To

String >= String

Numeric >= Numeric


Smaller Than

String < String

Numeric < Numeric


Smaller Than or Equal To

String <= String

Numeric <= Numeric


Find String

Use 2 vertical bars ||  --- example --- StringToFind || StringToMatchWithWildcard


Wildcard is * (asterisk)


Starts with
abc___def || abc*


Ends with
abc***def || *def


Contains
abc*zzz*def || *zzz*


Starts and Ends with
abc-zzz-def || abc*defReturn Code




Return Value


Index (1-base) of the True expression

Examples

            3 --- if only the 3rd expression is true

            2,3 --- if the 2nd and the 3rd expressions are both true\


            They can be stored in String, CSV, or File
