Description Kevin Chen 2015-03-01 02:15:14 UTC
When compiling switch statements with a case that throws an exception, the line marked "A" will give an unreachable code warning. However, if A is removed, B will give a fall-through error even though there is no fall through due to the exception. 

So it is not possible to compile this piece of code cleanly (without warnings or errors). 

int num = ...;
switch (num)
case 0:
    throw new NotImplementedException();
    break;     // Line A
case 1:        // Line B
