Hmm.. = or ==? Your statement is true, but perhaps not for the reasons you expect. However, the next person to try to roll about and laugh their backside off simultaneously rather than in two separate operations is likely to find lots of garbage on the floor that looks suspiciously like ToothyWiki page pointers. Wah! Assignment vs comparison bug! MoonShadowRunAndHides, putting his constants on the left-hand side of his expressions.
MoonShadow, bear in mind that Alex spends a lot of time working with Matlab which IIRC uses := for assignment.
No, I can't use that excuse. MATLAB uses = for assignment, and gives this error if you try to use it for testing: Error: Assignment statements do not produce results. (Use == to test for equality.) I was more thinking as a MathMo when I wrote the above "equation" (which isn't really anything of the kind)... --AC
