I learned how you can use the switch statement to make the program go through the stuff inside and choose the one that matches the condition set.
Isnt that basically what "if" statements do?
so does this mean we can completely replace 'if' with 'switch'? because it seems way more convenient

You can't. See the Terms of Service, in particular this paragraph:

Posts contributed to the community immediately become the property of DaniWeb upon submission. Members may edit their posts for a limited time period immediately after, for the purpose of correcting spelling and grammar mistakes and accidental ommissions. After this initial period expires, posts may only be edited or deleted by DaniWeb team members, and only in cases where they do not comply with our forum rules for the purpose of making said content comply with all rules. As a discussion community, posts contributed by many members work together to form coherent discussions. Altering or deleting individual posts may have consequences that unfairly extend to other members of the community. All members are held responsible for their actions. As always, think before you permanently post something on the public Internet.
