Alternative Representations of C++ Operators

Alternative Representations of C++ Operators

C++ defines textual representations for logical operators. Platforms and hardware equipment that do not support all the special characters used as logical operators can use these alternative representations. The alternative representations are also useful when you want to transfer source files in a portable form to other countries and locales, in which special characters such as ^ and ~ are not part of the national character set. The following list contains the alternative keywords supported by C++ and their equivalent operators:

 and		&&	and_eq		&=bitand		&bitor		|compl		~not		!not_eq		!=or		||or_eq		|=xor		^xor_eq		^=
