in reply to Operator Precedence

My response begins with a series of questions, to better illustrate my point.
What is the difference between your and you're?

What is the difference between 5 + 4 / 2 and (5 + 4) /2?

What is the difference between being explicit, and implicit?

What is the correlation between implying and assuming?


I, as a programmer, feel you should be as explicit possible, whenever possible. Learning the order of precedence is good as an exercise of knowledge. Implying meaning using order of precedence is an exercise in stupidity.
