False || not(true)

Hi>Volks

This is my 1st post to this ML,
but…

I read 'bout a problem: (false || not(true))
in a place, and made a little considerations.

I give NOW, the source code AsIs,
with the ‘comments’ in it…
=====
#!/usr/bin/env ruby -Ku

def case1©
if c.nil?

does nothing

elsif !c # c == false || not true

does nothing

else
puts "case1: ", c
end

It’s just NO problem, in C-programmer fashion [not fully tested]

end

def case2©
if c.nil?

does nothing

c == false || not true if you want it to be TRUE, before that,

#elsif c.class == Boolean or
#elsif c.class != Char or something, you must ask.

1st of all, have WE Classes like Boolean or Char ???

elsif c.class != String # now this line may be wrong question…

does nothing

puts "case2: c is no String"

elsif !c
puts "case2: ", c
end
end

c = STDIN.getc()

case1©
case2©

Was it just Me? that

got troubled with needless TRUE

in evaluating True-False, aString(or aChar) AsIs…

“||” is an operator that takes “expressions” for both operands, so that
you should provide parentheses around not, which is a “command”. In
short, you should write

c == false || (not true)

instead of

c == false || not true

Wow, you lived only 300m away from my parents’ house.

Thank you >Matz-san…

with it, you mean ‘not’ is not a Function?

seems tell ‘not’ is an Operator…
I’m not sure…

In short, you should write

c == false || (not true)

with the lines, my guess is to do with Priorities among Operators…
I’m not sure…(^_^ã‚ž

Wow, you lived only 300m away from my parents’ house.

I should take it serious. Then,
(‘matz’ + (‘motoakira’ - ‘akira’)) eval…(^_^ã‚ž

objectively yours…
