Effectively, the addition and the assignment are combined into one operator that performs both tasks at the same time. For information about the operators provided by the Swift standard library, see Operator Declarations. For more information, see Identity Operators. Each of the comparison operators returns a Bool value to indicate whether or not the statement is true:.
Comparison operators are often used in conditional statements, such as the if statement:. For more about the if statement, see Control Flow. You can compare two tuples if they have the same type and the same number of values. Those two values are compared, and the result of that comparison determines the overall result of the tuple comparison. If all the elements are equal, then the tuples themselves are equal.
For example:. In the example above, you can see the left-to-right comparison behavior on the first line. Because 1 is less than 2 , 1, "zebra" is considered less than 2, "apple" , regardless of any other values in the tuples.
Tuples can be compared with a given operator only if the operator can be applied to each value in the respective tuples. The Swift standard library includes tuple comparison operators for tuples with fewer than seven elements. To compare tuples with seven or more elements, you must implement the comparison operators yourself.
The ternary conditional operator is a special operator with three parts, which takes the form question? If question is true, it evaluates answer1 and returns its value; otherwise, it evaluates answer2 and returns its value. The ternary conditional operator provides an efficient shorthand for deciding which of two expressions to consider.
Use the ternary conditional operator with care, however. Its conciseness can lead to hard-to-read code if overused. Avoid combining multiple instances of the ternary conditional operator into one compound statement. The nil-coalescing operator a??
The expression a is always of an optional type. The expression b must match the type that is stored inside a. The code above uses the ternary conditional operator and forced unwrapping a! The nil-coalescing operator provides a more elegant way to encapsulate this conditional checking and unwrapping in a concise and readable form. If the value of a is non- nil , the value of b is not evaluated.
This is known as short-circuit evaluation. The example below uses the nil-coalescing operator to choose between a default color name and an optional user-defined color name:. The userDefinedColorName variable is defined as an optional String , with a default value of nil.
God does not choose a person base on what he had acquired or how smart you are. Godwin Simeon for verse Ecclesiastes The last statement "time chance fall or happen to them all " meaning, not by smartness,not by strenght,not even by human wisdom or understanding,but by GOD 'S grace. It takes grace to be a winner in any race of life,to be victorious in any battle of life, successful in every other aspect or department of life.
New International Version I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or. I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to.
This is exactly what the writer was trying to picture-out in Ecclesiastes Charles nwabuike for verse This verse teaches us to lean on God and wait for ur turn, for success in life is not about only skill and knowledge. Francis Bonye for verse Special thanks to top researcher Barry Popik for his invaluable efforts on this topic that were recorded on his web page here.
The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but it is not often that the turtle beats the hare. It sounds a little hard and cynical, but it is none the less true—the one who wins in this life for the most part is the one who deserves to win.
Correspondingly, the one who loses deserves to lose, for though the race is not always to the swift, nor the battle always to the strong, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it is so, and the palm is given to the most deserving. The shoe store here is a marked example of the good that comes out of bigness. The race may not always be to the swift,—all the expert opinions generally lean that way —but there is no question that in mercantile affairs the best is to the biggest. I merely say that the most able generally get to the top, and that success, other things being equal, is the surest proof of ability.
Though the race may not always be to the swift nor the battle to the strong, the odds are vastly in their favour. The race may not always be to the swift, but the times when it is not are few and far between, and in these days of keen competition he who keeps himself in closest touch with those whose work he is after is the one most likely to get it.
