In the midst of some sleep deprivation, I wrote some weird code: int areequal(float a, float b, float c, float d) { return (a == b == c == d); } Anyone know what this does? I thought it would return 1 if they were all equal, but it doesn't seem to. Mike C. http://www.coolgroups.com/zoomer/

the only way to do that would be

return (a==b&&a==c&&a==d&&b==c&&b==d&&c==d)

Quite easy -

a == b returns 0 or 1,
and since a == b == c is the same as (a == b) == c, then it checks if c is 0 or 1, based on a and b's equality.

etc.

You could do

return (a == b && b == c && c == d);

I see it now. It was a simple question.

Thanks.
