I'm fairly new to PHP web development and I've been working on building a web application. I've come across a situation where I need to handle different URLs or routes within my application. I was wondering if it's possible to use control structures, like if-else statements or switch cases, for routing or URL handling in PHP web applications.
I have a basic understanding of control structures and how they work in PHP, but I haven't been able to find any clear information on whether they can be used for routing purposes. I've seen some frameworks that have their own routing mechanisms, but I wanted to know if it's also possible to achieve this without using any frameworks.
Any insights or examples on how to handle routing or URL handling using control structures in PHP would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help!
