Do '&&' and '||' short-circuit in C?

>>if returns a value like the operand and

Ye, I was surprised, when if returned the result of its conditional (because it was false) and didn't proceeded to a sencence! (The long discussion about this finding was here: printing unitialized value of the 'do BLOCK')

    Yes, and Perl introduce and and or as low precedence alternatives.

    > The long discussion

    yes we had this before

    simple example

    DB<226> p do { unless (42) { } } 42 DB<227>

    Please keep in mind that "ternary operator" is not correct either, since it's a mathematical term classifying a whole family of operators with 3 operands. ? : is just the only ternary one in these languages.
