I thought the result of the following code would be 0,2, BUT it's 2,0.
Is the array index evaluated first? Or what could it be?



p.s.:from mock1 go4java

Leandro,

What i think is that since [] is always of the highest priority, so a[b] is evaluated first and it comes to a[1], and later on assignment operator is evaluated, that too it gets resolved from right to left, so u have:
a[1] = (b = 0);

which is finally
a[] = {2,0}
