Yes, That's okay too, though I do prefer to have the indent level reflect the number of currently open parens. So:

if( some_return_value = some_function( some_variable, some_other_variable, and_yet_another_variable, and_one_more_for, luck )) { // do some stuff here with some_return_value } else { // report or otherwise handle the error }

but sensible length variable names (and camelCase :) are better.

if( someRV = someFunc( some, someOther, yetMore, oneMore4, luck ) ) { // do some stuff here with some_return_value } else { // report or otherwise handle the error }

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
