As in, “to nest code”. This is what it’s called when you put one programming construct, such as an
if statement, inside of the block of another statement, like another
if statement or a
menu, typically via indentation.
menu: "You went for a walk.": if owns_dog: "You took your dog with you on a leash." else: "You grabbed a jacket on your way out." "You watched some TV": "You ended up watching a cooking show."
In this example, the
if statement is nested inside of the menu statement. Informally, you can see that this is the case because of the extra levels of indentation – the choice menu is already indented, and then the conditional/
if statement is indented one further level inside of that.
