Logical Operators in Objective-C

Advertisements


Following table shows all the logical operators supported by Objective-C language. Assume variable A holds 1 and variable B holds 0, then:

OperatorDescriptionExample
&& Called Logical AND operator. If both the operands are non-zero, then condition becomes true. (A && B) is false.
||Called Logical OR Operator. If any of the two operands is non-zero, then condition becomes true. (A || B) is true.
!Called Logical NOT Operator. Use to reverses the logical state of its operand. If a condition is true, then Logical NOT operator will make false. !(A && B) is true.

Example

Try the following example to understand all the logical operators available in Objective-C programming language:

#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

main()
{
   int a = 5;
   int b = 20;
   int c ;

   if ( a && b )
   {
      NSLog(@"Line 1 - Condition is true\n" );
   }
   if ( a || b )
   {
      NSLog(@"Line 2 - Condition is true\n" );
   }
   /* lets change the value of  a and b */
   a = 0;
   b = 10;
   if ( a && b )
   {
      NSLog(@"Line 3 - Condition is true\n" );
   }
   else
   {
      NSLog(@"Line 3 - Condition is not true\n" );
   }
   if ( !(a && b) )
   {
      NSLog(@"Line 4 - Condition is true\n" );
   }
}

When you compile and execute the above program, it produces the following result:

2013-09-07 22:35:57.256 demo[19012] Line 3 - Condition is not true
2013-09-07 22:35:57.256 demo[19012] Line 4 - Condition is true
