# G-4210: Try to use CASE rather than an IF statement with multiple ELSIF paths.

Major

Maintainability, Testability

## Reason

if statements containing multiple elsif tend to become complex quickly.

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 declare l_color varchar2(7 char); begin if l_color = constants_up.co_red then my_package.do_red(); elsif l_color = constants_up.co_blue then my_package.do_blue(); elsif l_color = constants_up.co_black then my_package.do_black(); end if; end; / 
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 declare l_color types_up.color_code_type; begin case l_color when constants_up.co_red then my_package.do_red(); when constants_up.co_blue then my_package.do_blue(); when constants_up.co_black then my_package.do_black(); else null; end case; end; /
