    What OR keyboard symbol are you talking about? I know of no such thing. Logical OR in C is denoted by ||. That is two | char's, informally called a "pipe char" by some. More info on that character here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertical_bar

    If you want a different answer you have to be more specific.

    I didn't know vertical/pipe/broken bar ( |, ¦ ) those two equal the same thing?


    On the wiki page it says that Broken bar (&#166 is a separate character from |

    Please clarify

    I would say it depends on your keyboard and depends on your keyboard settings.

    For my part, it's Shift+# (shift + the key left to character 1)

    On my keyboard that symbol lives above the backslash symbol. Shift + \ (twice) gets me the 'OR'. cheers

    Possibly this:

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Nice joke... Lotta people fell for it.

    (How did you type || if you don't know where the key is...)

    Now you just need to find the any key.

    Would that be an 'if any' key or an 'else any' key?

    The only one I've heard of is the "press any key", and I didn't have any problem finding it.
