Operators in C++ Part II

In the previous article, we had been discussing about what operators are and the types of operators in C++. In that article, we discussed till arithmetic and relational operators, in this article we will continue our discussion with operators in C++ by moving on to the other types of operators.

Logical Operators

In the previous article, we discussed about relational operators that eastablish relationships among the operands, logical operators refers to the ways by which these relationships can be connected.

(Logical OR), && (Logical AND), ! (Logical NOT) are the three types of logical operators. These are used to combine existing expressions.

The examples below will illustrate the working of each of these operators.

(4<5)(5<4) this expression results in 1 (true), since one of the expression (first one) is true.

(6<8)&&(4==4) results in 1 (true).

(6<8)&&(4<3) results in 0 (false), because one of the relation is false.

!(4<8) results in 0 (false).

!(4>10) results in 1 (true).

Since (!) operator reverses the value of the expression, it is also known as the negation operator.

   //C++ Program to illustrate logical operators
   void main(void)
   int a=5,b=10,c=15,r;
   cout<<r;//true (1)
   cout<<r;//false (0)
   cout<<r;//false (0)

Conditional Operator

It has the syntax: expression1?decision1:decision2;

It can be read as: if expression1 is true then the value of the whole expression evaluates to decision1 otherwise the value of whole expression evaluates to decision2.

9>7?11:12 This expression evaluates to 11.

Its use is illustrated in the program below:

   //Program to illustrate the use of conditional opeartor
   void main(void)
   int income, age;
   float tax;
   cout<<"enter income: ";
   cout<<endl<<"enter age; ";
   cout<<"TAX: "<<tax;

sizeof Opeartor

It is a unary operator (operates on one operand). It returns the length (in bytes) of the operand (which can be any declared variable or data type).

   //C++ Program to illustrate sizeof operator
   void main(void)
   int a;
   float b;
   char c;
   cout<<"sizeof variable a: "<<sizeof a<<endl;
   cout<<"sizeof variable b: "<<sizeof b<<endl;
   cout<<"sizeof variable c: "<<sizeof c<<endl;
   cout<<"sizeof data type int: "<<sizeof (int)<<endl;
   cout<<"sizeof data type float: "<<sizeof (float)<<endl;
   cout<<"sizeof data type char: "<<sizeof (char)<<endl;

Fix For Toshiba Satellite "RTC Battery is Low" Error (with Pictures)

RTC Battery is Low Error on a Toshiba Satellite laptop "RTC Battery is Low..." An error message flashing while you try to boot your laptop is enough to panic many people. But worry not! "RTC Battery" stands for Real-Time Clock battery which almost all laptops and PCs have on their motherboard to power the clock and sometimes to also keep the CMOS settings from getting erased while the system is switched off.  It is not uncommon for these batteries to last for years before requiring a replacement as the clock consumes very less power. And contrary to what some people tell you - they are not rechargeable or getting charged while your computer or laptop is running. In this article, we'll learn everything about RTC batteries and how to fix the error on your Toshiba Satellite laptop. What is an RTC Battery? RTC or CMOS batteries are small coin-shaped lithium batteries with a 3-volts output. Most laptops use

The Best Way(s) to Comment out PHP/HTML Code

PHP supports various styles of comments. Please check the following example: <?php // Single line comment code (); # Single line Comment code2 (); /* Multi Line comment code(); The code inside doesn't run */ // /* This doesn NOT start a multi-line comment block /* Multi line comment block The following line still ends the multi-line comment block //*/ The " # " comment style, though, is rarely used. Do note, in the example, that anything (even a multi-block comment /* ) after a " // " or " # " is a comment, and /* */ around any single-line comment overrides it. This information will come in handy when we learn about some neat tricks next. Comment out PHP Code Blocks Check the following code <?php //* Toggle line if ( 1 ) {      // } else {      // } //*/ //* Toggle line if ( 2 ) {      // } else {      // } //*/ Now see how easy it is to toggle a part of PHP code by just removing or adding a single " / " from th

How to Create an HTML Form Linked with MySQL Database in PHP

If you're looking for example code and detailed discussion on how to create an HTML form that stores data in a MySQL database using PHP then this post might be what you're looking for. I assume that you're familiar with basic HTML, CSS, PHP coding, and  MySQL. I am going to divide this small project into two parts: The HTML form itself that takes input from the user and the PHP script that saves it into the database A table that displays the user-added data that has been saved in the database. We'll be dealing with the first part in this tutorial. Again I'd like to break this problem into a few parts so that it's easier for you to understand and probably gives you an insight into how breaking up a problem into smaller chunks can help make things clearer in your mind. Let's think about it, there is an HTML form (that is HTML code), then there is the PHP code that deals with the user-input data, and the MySQL database itself. For this tutorial, we'll b
