Where Native America meets pop culture
I have to take objection to the ampersand's uselessness. It's useful in C as meaning a bitwise "and", so 5 & 2 = 101 & 010 = 000 = 0. Also in C, it's also doubled to make the more traditional, Boolean meaning of "and", as in "x && y" means the same as "x and y".Of course, you can't do anything in C without the #, so I have to #include it as tying with the brackets, parentheses, and semicolon.The ampersand is also useful in HTML, but primarily with the oglethorpe.
The ampersand is used in much more than just programming languages. It often appears in items such as titles ("Cowboys & Aliens") and abbreviations (R&D, S&L). The article clearly dismissed it too quickly.
