    math or if statement

    Hello,

    I at some point in my past was advised that sometimes using math to determine a thing was better than the actually logic, because the processing was shorter.

    I don't remember what it was referring to, for, or if, or some sort of high-level shorthand

    However, since then, I've been using math or mod instead of if's from time to time,

    is that actually faster?
    will the average future coder understand my use of mod?


    eg, is it better to say:

    for i from 0 to 10
    whatever = i mod 5


    or

    for i from 0 to 10
    if i < 5
    whatever = i
    else
    whatever = i - 5

    If you use something that you feel that others won't find clear, add a comment.

    Neither one. They don't compile without End If.

    Also, you don't use 'whatever'
