Multiple conditions in "if" statement?

I know this has been talked about before, but never satisfactorily (and
just
to preempt - “or” isnt “and”). Is there any reason for not enabling
"and"s
in “if” conditions? Are there any plans to do so?

In the meantime, here is your PSA:

What’s wrong with “&&”?

Wait, does this mean ‘or’ works in if conditions?

Yes, && works for me:

if 1 == 1 && 2 == 2; puts “this worked”; end
this worked
=> nil

Neither && nor || are valid in nginx if statements. This isn’t
ruby. See http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxHttpRewriteModule#if for
more information.

Sorry, I’m a huge idiot… I didn’t look at what forum this was coming
from. My bad, I’ll start looking at that… :slight_smile:

I could have been all excited for a moment.
&& and || in if statements would make my conf files so much easier to
maintain.

i would add it but i havent done any C programming since Be Inc. went
under in the 90s so I would probably fubar it.
