Well... technically it is possible use #switch #case in a function
definition, but it will be evaluated only at parse time, freezing the
function definition at whatever the parse state was at that point.  This
is not generally useful.

So, do as Bill and Jr say: use select().  (I had to find this out the
hard way.)
