in reply to Logical expression style

My style is probably closest to your "operator goes at the beginning". I do stick the operators in front of the expressions, but I usually indent slightly more:

if (A [too, short, lets, add, something] && B [too, short, lets, add, something] && C [too, short, lets, add, something])

Why? Well, it's sorta like saying why one color is better than another (at least to me). For one, the extra indention that puts B and C below A helps clarify (again, "to me") that B and C are part of A's expression. Second, the &&'s sorta act like bullets listing the B and C expressions. :-) And finally, in my head, the &&'s apply more to B and C rather than A and B.

Maybe those aren't very good reasons, but I just like it like that, and in the same way: "Blue rules!" ;-)
