If you remember to put the constant on the left side, you also would remember to double the equals sign.

And why the h*** do we have to double the equals sign? This thread makes me miss Pascal so much!

In Norwegian, "yoda" sounds like "joda...", ususally pronounced with a sigh, meaning "yes, but...". I hear what you say, but I am certainly not sure that you are right. So "yoda" may be an appropriate term Smile | :)

Pascal, and several other languages from that period, were designed by experts on formal languages, parsing etc. C is based on a collection of scraps left over from an early days space invation game implementation. OK, those students were certainly clever, but they were not experienced language designers.
