WANTED: a WHAT-IF function. (No, not a reasoner but a dreamer)
I never noticed this. I mean you just take care of every case.
As a programmer you just keep adding CASE or if-Then-else. But once it’s done, it’s done. you HAVE to have taken care of every reasonable contingency otherwise you have a crappy program.
But I never thought Of the exclusiveness Of this way.
ALTS: possibly “entries in a lookup table” for a fixed but Changable set of choices or “regex/glob pattern matching *” stuff for MULTIPLE answers. AI falls into the glob side I think.
