Actually $dan, you were explicit, which I should mentioned in my comment explicitly too. (I up-voted you right away in any case :-)

comment Continuous relations?
There are various papers/definitions etc for continuous multi-valued functions--continuous in one sense or another (some of these publications are interesting). One may perhaps allow also empty set of values for some arguments but it would not be common.

comment An algorithm and symbolic manipulation for IF-THEN-ELSE
This may hold for languages simpler than C or perl. For C and perl etc one has to consider I-I-T-T etc. Then I think that your solution under such general situation will fail for I-I-T-T-E-E. Possibly one should discuss the formulation of the problem first.

It's already 4 down-votes and 3 votes for closing. Any explanation? And no algorithm? This is a basic (if simple) question. If it's beneath your dignity to post an Answer then post such algorithm in your Comment.

comment An algorithm and symbolic manipulation for IF-THEN-ELSE
I just got 2 down-votes. Thus it would be natural for you two to add something like: BTW, here is the algorithm for IF-THEN-ELSE, it's trivial; and then present it. After all, such a theorem would be simple but nevertheless essential. It should not be neglected.

comment An algorithm and symbolic manipulation for IF-THEN-ELSE
@Andreas, I had difficulties to connect a programing statement with a logical statement. E.g. in a program we have IF(logical sentence) THEN (action)--we do not have another logical sentence but action. Anyway, you've written it already better then I did :-) Let me just add that what is symmetric in logic is NOT symmetric in programs (I mean the analogically sounding constructions).

Joseph, this time your (still pretty!) picture makes me dizzy.

comment An algorithm and symbolic manipulation for IF-THEN-ELSE
Hm, I don't see at this moment a direct connection between the programming constructions and the logical sentences. (I have arrived at an impression that it is rather the logic which is a part of the engineering constructions rather the other way around; I should go back to this, i hope so).

comment An algorithm and symbolic manipulation for IF-THEN-ELSE
Actually, one can associate IF-THEN-ELSE with the logical constant sentences which are formed during the execution of a program (however it doesn't seem to me that   "if A, then B, else C"   is the same as your, @Noah, "(A and B) or C".

$Noah: the IF-THEN-ELSE doesn't belong to the elementary logic. I don't see how standard logic is automatically applicable to IF-THEN-ELSE of the computer programs. About Q1, I'll add an extra comment.
