Assuming you're talking to me, then yeah, that's what I was saying.
But that was then. Now I think that the statement in the reference
meant that while in "a < b < c" it is guaranteed that b is evaluated
only once, in "a < b and b < c" b may or maynot be evaluated once.
But then, that was what I was thinking when I started writing that
sentence. Now I wonder if it is as ambiguous as that. What happens
if b is something with side effects?
