Why are you using one = instead of == when comparing in the if statement?

To be honest I never do it. Even the compiler complains about

Use of '=' in a boolean context, did you mean '=='?

Hey Meir,

Could you post the example from the video? I just re-watched the video and did not see him using a (single) = except to assign values in the if/else statement. He did use != for a "Not equal to" comparison a couple times, however.


Meir, are you referring to the previous video, with the introduction to if case statements? I've asked a similar question to yours under that video just now.
