ASTM — Describe the behavior of ConditionalExpression

  • Key: ASTM-2
  • Legacy Issue Number: 12592
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Hewlett-Packard ( Faron Dutton)
  • Summary:

    Describe the behavior of ConditionalExpression. Some languages only evaluate the condition and one result expression (i.e., short circuit evaluation) and others (e.g., Visual Basic) evaluate all three expressions. Specification of the expected behavior in GASTM promotes interoperability since translation of this behavior from one language to another will produce the expected result. Recommend adopting the short-circuit behavior since this appears to dominate
