comparison operation


In c++, I can do this:

     int n = 5;
     n == 0 ? ok() : notok();

This doesn't seem to be possible, keep getting compilation errors about the n == 0 part, can't convert integer to boolean?

Is there some way to do that?

ok() or notok() should return a value...


var = (n==0) ? ok() : notok();

musn't both return a value then? I mean what would the effect of var = (void SomeFunc()) be?

Also, why do they HAVE to return a value? What if the two functions are just meant to return void?

You cannot use function returning void in ?: operator..

You must use function returning some value...
