  • (case e & clauses)
Takes an expression, and a set of clauses.
 Each clause can take the form of either:
 test-constant result-expr
 (test-constant1 ... test-constantN)  result-expr
 The test-constants are not evaluated. They must be compile-time
literals, and need not be quoted.  If the expression is equal to a
test-constant, the corresponding result-expr is returned. A single
default expression can follow the clauses, and its value will be
returned if no clause matches. If no default expression is provided
and no clause matches, an IllegalArgumentException is thrown.
 Unlike cond and condp, case does a constant-time dispatch, the
clauses are not considered sequentially.  All manner of constant
expressions are acceptable in case, including numbers, strings,
symbols, keywords, and (Clojure) composites thereof. Note that since
lists are used to group multiple constants that map to the same
expression, a vector can be used to match a list if needed. The
test-constants need not be all of the same type.
