How to write an if statement that returns which of the conditions is met

2 views (last 30 days)
I have the following psuedocode:
if (cond1) or (cond2)
Now I would like it to tell which of the two conditions are met or both of them are met by printing the corresponding conditions. How would I accomplish this?

Provided cond1 and cond2 are scalar logical values:
(cond1) + 2 * (cond2)
This returns 1 if cond1 but not cond2, returns 2 if cond2 but not cond1, and returns 3 if both of them are true.
