Because you asked for it

[ #24891 ]
For the folks who wanted C style switching behaviour in Switch::Perlish (version 1.4):

use Switch::Perlish 'C';

my $food = shift;
switch $food, sub {
  case 'pizza';
  case 'burger';
  case 'fried-chicken';
  case 'tub-o-lard', sub {
    print "Your food is probably delicious\n";
    stop;
  };
  case 'celery';
  case 'rice-cracker';
  case 'plaster';
  case 'grass', sub {
    print "Your food is probably bland\n";
    stop;
  };
  default sub {
    print "Your food is without compare\n";
  };
};

You can also match mutliple things in the normal style using an anonymous array. i.e

case [qw/ pizza burger fried-chicken tub-o-lard /], sub { ... }

Different keystrokes for different folks ...
