templates, it's surprising how many
issues it can solve, and how much large arrays it can manage. My
1. Is there a reasonable upper limit for the number of #switch options?
2. Is there a difference in server load between a long list of #switch
options and a "tree" of options t.i. something as a nested #switch?
3. Is there any drawback into a large use of #swtch-based templates?
I can at least tell you that the answer to #1 is probably no, and the
answer to #3 is yes. There were some server issues last week that were
blamed on ocwiki's use of templates with #switch statements with
thousands of options. For instance,
has 36,611 cases, because it's essentially used as a database. That's
the kind of thing that takes forever to parse.
