The output of the above code is -2 2 0 1
Why is this happening?I guess it should have been -2 3 1 1

++i is true, so the rest will not be evaluated. ++j, ++k will not be executed.

Expressions are evaluated from left to right in c++,
As ++i is true, right hand side of || will not get evaluated.

Is that a general rule, or does it only apply to expressions separated by && and ||?

You would need to check the language specifications carefully; I know left-to-right is specified for Java, but I am not sure about C++.
