Description

The logical operators and (&&) and or (||) operate on all scalar and vector built-in types. For scalar built-in types only, and (&&) will only evaluate the right hand operand if the left hand operand compares unequal to 0. For scalar built-in types only, or (||) will only evaluate the right hand operand if the left hand operand compares equal to 0. For built-in vector types, both operands are evaluated and the operators are applied component-wise. If one operand is a scalar and the other is a vector, the scalar may be subject to the usual arithmetic conversion to the element type used by the vector operand. The scalar type is then widened to a vector that has the same number of components as the vector operand. The operation is done component-wise resulting in the same size vector.

The logical operator exclusive or (^^) is reserved.

The result is a scalar signed integer of type int if the source operands are scalar and a vector signed integer type of the same size as the source operands if the source operands are vector types. Vector source operands of type charn and ucharn return a charn result; vector source operands of type shortn and ushortn return a shortn result; vector source operands of type intn, uintn and floatn return an intn result; vector source operands of type longn, ulongn and doublen return a longn result.

For scalar types, the logical operators shall return 0 if the result of the operation is false and 1 if the result is true. For vector types, the logical operators shall return 0 if the result of the operation is false and -1 (i.e. all bits set) if the result is true.
