Yeah, I remembered that once I thought about it a bit more after hitting
the send button... oops :-/
I once knew all this stuff intimately; I could've even written out a
complete operator precedence table from memory! Having only programmed
in C on occasion over the last 12 years I now realise that some of that
knowledge is getting a little hazy.
While I unfortunately polluted the thread with my misguided ramblings I
have nevertheless found this discussion very useful.
