Code inspection: Convert 'if' statement into 'switch'

This inspection reports series of if statements and suggests converting them into a single switch statement or switch expression.

A single switch can make your code cleaner and easier to understand compared to multiple if statements, especially as the number of tested cases increases.

class Parser { Marker Parse(string marker) { if (marker is "<=HEADER=>") return Marker.Header; if (marker is "<=FOOTER=>") return Marker.Footer; return Marker.None; } } enum Marker {None, Header, Footer}
class Parser { Marker Parse(string marker) { return marker switch { "<=HEADER=>" => Marker.Header, "<=FOOTER=>" => Marker.Footer, _ => Marker.None }; } } enum Marker {None, Header, Footer}
