in reply to if variants

regarding the precedence, you can also use the and and or variants who have lower precendence so that you can have assignements work.

Here's a rough example with nested ifs and an else

if ($i > 1 ) { if ($a = function_that_may_fail()) { $i++; } else { $i = 1; } }

can become:

$i > 1 and $a = function_that_may_fail() and $i++ or $i = 1;

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    Personally I like:

    if ($i>1) { $a = function_that_may_fail(); $i = ($a) ? $i+1 : 1; }

    I find that the only time I really use "and" and "or" are with carp/croak/warn/die. But that's just me.

    At worst:

    do { $a=function_that_may_fail(); $i= $a ? $i+1 : 1; } if ($i>1)

    Ack! I forgot to mention parentheses! I've got to go add slightly to my "Appendix" section, now.

[choroba]: that's 2012
[zentara]: I just acquired a computer with the card type, and wondered if it was best to stick with the open-source code or use NVIDIA's proprietary code
[zentara]: do you feel good about a non-open-source code, being in control of your display functions?
[choroba]: If you're not going to play 3d games on it, using the open source driver should be enough
[zentara]: choroba that is true, and the wise choice, but I want to see how fast I can get fglrx3dspheres to run... just as an intellectual challenge :-)
