These instructions were found in a manual about a computer
programming language. Perhaps because of wording like this there are not
more programmers than there are:
Look at the first compare of the second group of compare
statements. The expression "r != s" will evaluate as a
"true" since "r" was set to 0.0 above, so the result
will be a non-zero value, probably 1. Even though the two variables that
are compared are "float" variables, the result will be of type
"integer." There is no explicit variable to which it will be
assigned so the result of the compare is an implied integer. Finally the
resulting number, 1 in this case, is assigned to the integer variable
"x". If double equal signs were used, the phantom value,
namely 1, would be compared to the value of "x", but since the
single equal sign is used, the value 1 is simply assigned to
"x", as though the statement were not in parentheses.
