Nested ternaries can be simulated as returns the index of the first true value in the condition vector.Note that both of these map equivalents are binary operators, revealing that the ternary operator is ternary in syntax, rather than semantics.In almost all languages, the ternary operator is right associative so that , which is rarely what any programmer expects.
An expression Although many ternary operators are possible, the conditional operator is so common, and other ternary operators so rare, that the conditional operator is commonly referred to as the ternary operator.
The detailed semantics of "the" ternary operator as well as its syntax differs significantly from language to language.
is a ternary operator that is part of the syntax for basic conditional expressions in several programming languages.
It is commonly referred to as the conditional operator, inline if (iif), or ternary if.
These constructions can be regarded as a weak form of currying based on data concatenation rather than function composition.
If the language provides a mechanism of futures or promises, then short-circuit evaluation can sometimes also be simulated in the context of a binary map operation.Note that neither the true nor false portions can be omitted from the conditional operator without an error report upon parsing.This contrasts with if-then-else statements, where the else clause can be omitted.Logical comparison operators are used in conjuction with relational and equality operators as described in the relational operators section and equality and inequality operators section.They provide a means to perform multiple comparisons within a a single expression. The operand before the operator contains data to be shifted and the operand after the operator contains the number of single bit shift operations to be performed.The condition is evaluated true or false as a Boolean expression.On the basis of the evaluation of the Boolean condition, the entire expression returns value_if_true if condition is true, but value_if_false otherwise.For these reasons, in some languages the statement form (in the C language—the syntax of the example given—these are in fact equivalent).The associativity of nested ternary operators can also differ from language to language.The conditional operator's most common usage is to make a terse simple conditional assignment statement.For example, if we wish to implement some C code to change a shop's normal opening hours from 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock on Sundays, we may use The two forms are nearly equivalent. : is an expression and if-then-else is a statement.
