Does a switch statement acting on a template parameter act just like a chain of  static if-else's? That is, does it just generate the code for the matching case?

enum E { A, B, C }

class Blah(E param) {
  void foo() {
    switch(param) {
      case(E.A) : blah;
      case(E.B) : ....
      default:
    }
  }
}

Thanks,

It doesn't. It's easy to check anyway.

Not for me :) I just saw that it worked, and wondered if it worked statically.
Thanks!
