Chained Comparisons

Written by Magnus Holm.

Maybe someone should help me refactor this code?

## Implementing chained comparisons in Ruby

(1..10).each do |x|
  case
  when x < 3
    puts "#{x} is quite low"
  when 3 <= x < 6
    puts "#{x} is quite all right"
  when 6 <= x < 10
    puts "#{x} is quite fine"
  when 10 <= x
    puts "#{x} is quite high"
  end
end
