“Yoda Conditions” (from: stackoverflow – New programming jargon you coined?)

The Wiert Corner – Having done quite a bit of C and C++ work in the past, I often still use “Yoda Conditions”, especially in environments where you have both = and == as an operator. So, in a boolean expression, I often put the constant to test in front of the test. I recently learned at stackoverflow that quite a few people call these “Yoda Conditions”: “Yoda Conditions”— the act of using if(constant == variable) instead of if(variable == constant), like if(4 == foo). Because it’s like saying “if blue is the sky” or “if tall is the man”. Thanks ...
