The ‘#else’ directive can be added to a conditional to provide alternative text to be used if the condition fails. This is what it looks like:
#if expression text-if-true #else /* Not expression */ text-if-false #endif /* Not expression */
If expression is nonzero, the text-if-true is included and the text-if-false is skipped. If expression is zero, the opposite happens.
You can use ‘#else’ with ‘#ifdef’ and ‘#ifndef’, too.
