My point is that (some of) the provided answers make no sense and I can therefore not give a meaningful answer.


Your point is understood and my point is that if someone is clever enough to understand that even not in a conditional statement is compared to true, should easily understand the point of this survey question which is, again, what you use.

Actually this if will probably be translated to some jumps after some cmp instructions which in fact are not compared to neither true nor false but to 1 or 0.

Also one might say that cmp is not an instruction; it's nothing more than a number in binary form or even not that but some high or low voltages waiting for being processed in next CPU cycle. Oh wait they're not waiting there just a flipflop is... The survey question isn't talking about any of these. It's what you type in your programming editor. Based on the question I believe choices are relevant and make sense.

Just my 2 cents. Smile | :)
