Hello, Yes, I did, and if you read my responses you can see that I came to the realisations you describe. I don't think that anyone suggested there was a bug. > $a is true (ie it is not set to a 'false' value, > whatever PHP uses for false) and $b is "bar" because that is what it is set > to. Since the evaluation is within a bracket, the interior values ($a, $b) > are set BEFORE the if condition is evaluated. Regarding this I'm a bit confused. In the case of an OR operator, $b is not "bar" because it follows the "true" path as you said earlier. Probably just a glitch in the English language. I'll file a bug for that.
