1: public class Q10
2: {
3: public static void main(String[] args)
4: {
5: int i = 10;
6: int j = 10;
7: boolean b = false;
8:
9: if( b = i == j)
10: System.out.println("True");
11: else
12: System.out.println("False");
13: }
14: }

If run the output is True and the reason as per author is
"Conditional operators have high precedence than assignment operators"
Can someone explain this to me in more details.
Thanks,
Rajiv

Hi Rajiv,
What happens is that when the compiler sees the statement
(b=i==j), it will interpret it as (b=(i==j). The conditional operator will be executed first, and it returns true, so true is assigned to boolean b, and therefore b = true, and this is outputted.
Hope this helps
Brian
