Boolean style switch-case statements

Hello, I am trying to determine if there is a means of performing Boolean style logic comparisons using the switch-case mechanism; I use switch-case a ton as I find it useful for avoiding extensive 'strcmp' or 'x==1', etc. statements. However, let us say I have a situation where I have cases based on multiple variables, the following pseudo-code shows my intentions:
A = logical;
B = charstring;
switch A,B
case true, 'Apples'
function1;
case true, 'Bananas'
function2;
case false, 'Apples'
function3;
%etc.
otherwise
functionN
end
Now, I understand that I can do this exact same thing in other ways, namely either nested switch-case statements or going back to using standard Boolean logic. However, those methods tend to obscure the intention of each case, and make it more difficult to program in new cases, and I simply find switch case to be the more elegant solution in many situations. Any ideas?
