Constructor Details

#initialize(conditions, default, expression = (no_expression=true; nil)) ⇒ CaseExpression

def initialize(conditions, default, expression=(no_expression=true; nil))
  raise(Sequel::Error, 'CaseExpression conditions must be a hash or array of all two pairs') unless Sequel.condition_specifier?(conditions)
  @conditions, @default, @expression, @no_expression = conditions.to_a, default, expression, no_expression
end
