Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2001-08-30 07:49:43 UTC
Why do you think it is incorrectly optimized?
ISO C does not require a sequence point after the left operand of == operator
(see ISO C99, 6.5/3 and the whole ISO C99 Annex C), so gcc is allowed
to evaluate the two operands to == operator in any order it wants.
