What idiom do you use? I strongly prefer using "or" myself, but there is nothing wrong with using || as long as you get the parens straight. Besides, the 'debugging hell' tends to teach a very important lesson on the importance of precedence. :)

    I not only prefer "or", I have gone as far as coercing coworkers to use it as well, for the simple reason that "or" always works as expected in this type of statement. I'm a strong believer in Defensive Programming, and avoiding "debugging hell" at all costs. I honestly don't think that the lesson in this case is worth the potential time waste. This is only my opinion, I am definitely not telling anyone else here what to do.
