Any thoughts on the comma operator (C/C++/Obj-C?)
I recently decided to insert a few comma operators into the output lines of my C++ code and I feel like they've cleaned up my code a lot.
For example, I had this code:
cout << "Can't place " << v << " at " << x << ", " << y << endl << "Add: "; printBitsForInt(mask); cout << "Old: "; printBitsForInt(conflicts[v-1]); cout << endl;
And by introducing a few sequence points I feel like I was able to clean it up quite a bit, improve legibility, and reduce the amount of space it takes up.
cout << "Can't place " << v << " at " << x << ", " << y << endl << "Add: ", printBitsForInt(mask), cout << endl; << "Old: ", printBitsForInt(conflicts[v-1]), cout << endl;
I'm wondering if I could use the same basic idea in the future with some C or Obj-C code.
Also, is there any real difference between using the comma operator and inserting a semicolon? I feel like the compiler probably generates the same code for both, wouldn't it?
Are there any other good uses for the comma operator?
