What exactly is meant of by associativity(right to left / left to right) mentioned on p53 of K&R 2nd edition. The book mentions that in
X= f() + g()
f may be evaluated before g or vice versa . But in the table it has been mentioned that () has the highest precedence and left to right associativity. Why isn`t that it is guaranteed that f is evaluated first.
If this is not the right place to apply the associativity rules , please help me with an example so as to clarify the things.
I have something in my mind as an explanation of this , but first I want to hear all your views . Plzzzzzz.....
