n.— «C was designed for programmers who hate to type (and so is the whole UN*X system). So some of the names may be strange, if what you mean is their simplexity. For example, && stands for .AND. and a+=b is a=a+b, etc.» —“Re: C critisisms” by Fai Lau Usenet: comp.lang.c Jan. 3, 1988. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
