Precedence Of Operators And Associativity
It is necessary to be careful of the meaning of such expressions as a + b * c.
We may want the effect as either
(a + b) * c
a + (b * c)
All operators have a priority, and high priority operators are evaluated before lower
priority ones. Operators of the same priority are evaluated from left to right, so that:
a - b - c
is evaluated as: (a - b) - c
as you would expect.
From high priority to low priority the order for all C operators (we have not met all of
them yet) is:
Thus: a < 10 && 2 * b < c is interpreted as: (a < 10) && ((2 * b) < c)
