Q:What is the output :

int var1=4,var2=6;
var2=var2 || var++ && printf("Computer World");
printf("%d %d",var1,var2);

the answer coming out is :4 1

My problem is how this is executing...

If you are going to say that this is SHORT CIRCUIT then my question to you is :
How the precedence is being followed in this expression?
Because in this precedence should be like:

Do consider this also
2+3*4+6 since *(multiply) has higher precedence than + thus we calculate * before +
Same must be applied in the above program if we go by the precedence...

Why the double post in a forum where a C related question is so obviously off topic?

luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
