Description Marcus De Luigi 2004-04-19 14:51:36 UTC
Try that code:
---8<---
int j = 2;
int i = 2;
i = i-- + ++j;
cout << i;
--->8---
The suprising result is that i == 1.
I tried this on pc (intel), powerpc and sparc.

The result is because the compiler does something like:
---8<---
tmp1 = i--;
tmp2 = ++j;
i = i + tmp2;
i = tmp1;
--->8---
(check the asm-code for more details).

That's not what the programer expects.

Invalid as you are modifing i twice without a sequence point inbetween.
i = i-- + ++j;
