Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This is a parameter selection template. It returns the value of the parameter whose name is the value of parameter p.

Usage[edit source]

  • {{pstp|p=a|a=fa|b=fb}} → fa
  • {{pstp|p=b|a=fa|b=fb}} → fb

Thus {{pstp|p={{{1}}}|a=fa|b=fb|..}} can represent any function f given by a set of pairs (a,fa), (b,fb), .. , except that these cannot include a pair (p,fp). To allow the latter also, we can use {{pstp|p=q{{{1}}}|qa=fa|qb=fb|..}}.
