I could not provide a better example than one given by Ricardo Signes at the ABE.pm mailing list. His message is well worthy reading, explaining why Perl never got a dumb switch and why this new construction is a switch on steroids.
The example is augmented by a clause suggested in a reply from the same thread as the original message.
