It also has all those redundant comparison operators. Why have both
<=, >, and >= when all you need is < and =?
And of course it has all those redundant bit operators: all you
is & and ~.
And so on…
Well, those are all rather extreme examples of course. The reason to
have those operators in C is that they provide some value over the
How much (real) value does #indexes offer over #indices? I THINK
that’s what he was getting at.
