    Quick question

    Is it legal to pass an assignment statement to a function?
    Ex:

    void f(int a, int b);

    int main (void)
    {
    int c = 2, d = 3;
    f(c=d*2, d = 3);
    }

    void f(int a, int b)
    {
    return a*b;
    }

    My compiler is all messed up so I can't test it right now.

    Here's what I found out. I would do it like this...
    f( d*2, 3 )

    But, if you insist on doing that, the first paramter a would receive (c = d * 2) which would be 12. Also, it would take d = 3 as the second, which would be 3. So I don't think you would get your desired results that way.
    it would be the same thing and would definitely work.
