Let me add to that question - not using a lookup dictionary, but a 2D array:

I regularly see people claim that they program in a 'state machine' fashion (breaking numerous rules for state machine programming, but that's not the question here), essentially as a switch or sequence of if-else on the event, each switch/else alternative being another switch/if-else on the current state. I find that coding style terrible, impossible to maintain.

My coding style for state machines is creating a 2D array of Action and Output delegate references and a NextState value, possibly headed by a predicate delegate reference (so the array becomes a 2,5D one). In the worst case, three delegates must be called, plus one per failing predicate. In the simplest case, a single delegate is called (no predicate, no output).

Obviously, there is also the initial indexing of the state table on event and state, and if the entry has a chain of predicated alternatives, the code to iterate over them. This is part of the basic transition mechanism, unrelated to the specific table/transition.

This way of coding state machines has so many advantages that I will be very reluctant to change it. Yet I wonder: Is this indexing and delegate calling a CPU costly way of doing it, compared to nesting of switch / if-else in 2-3 levels? Are there performance pitfalls I should be aware of when indexing / calling delegates?

Religious freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make five.
