    multi conditional if statements?

    There's got to be a way to include more than one condition withing a single set of parentheses.. for instance

    If (n==0) ...

    I tried a few different distinguishers like commas, semicolon, even the & sign, and none work.

    If (n==0, z==1, p==2) ...

    What is it exactly that I must type? If there is no way, I'm a bit dissapointed because I like very much the ability to group conditions and have one else which is executed if any of the conditions are false.

    if you want or its two vertical bars || and is 2 &&

    ex.

    if (b==0 || b==5)
    -basically means if b is 0 or 5 do whats inside if statement.

    if (b<100 && b> 50)
    -basically means if b is less than 100 and greater than 50 then do whats inside if statment

    Ah, thanks

    I knew there was more logic to that bit of syntax

    Thanks I forgot that double operators are needed for conditions in c++

    Chaser, considering that you posted this in the game forum, I don't think you should be making a game. If you don't have the very very basics down it is going to be extremely difficult for you to make a game. So I recommend (in fact urge) you to take more time learning the basics. You have a while before you are going to be ready to make any games, even if that game were a simple text tic-tac-toe game.
