Replacements for switch statement in Python?

0 votes
If i have to write a function in Python that returns different fixed values based on the value of an input index.

In other languages I would use a switch or case statement, but Python does not appear to have a switch statement. What are the recommended Python solutions?

If you'd like defaults you could use the dictionary get(key[, default]) method:

def f(x):
    return {
        'a': 1,
        'b': 2
    }.get(x, 9)    # 9 is default if x not found
This would help.
