    Default Why the following code wouldn't compile. Please advise

    if !x > x + y
    x = 2 * x;
    else
    x = x + 3;

    The syntax is rubbish (Java-wise, that is) and semantically the (crippled) if condition is only true if y < 0. What did you have in mind when you made this up?

    kind regards,
