hi,

Can anyone explain me the results of the following program....

insertAccording to my understandingCode:main() { int i=-3,j=2,k=0,m; m=++i && ++j || ++k; printf("%d %d %d %d",i.j,k,m); }

&& operation will be the first one to execute....when compared to || so....

++i will be -2

and

++j will be 3

since ++i and ++j are used in an expressin (&&) these two values will be incremented first and then logical && operator will be applied...Please correct me if i am wrong.

so the result will be 0

this 0 is logically OR'ed with ++k;

++k will be 1 now.(since it is used in expression)

so

0 || 1 will result in 1

so the output must be....

-2,3,1,1....but when i type the program and execute in GCC

its giving the output

-2,3,0,1

I didn't understand why k is not getting incremented....

Please give me some explanation or correct me if i am wrong.....

Regards,

Ram
