Here are two tests:
if [1,2,3,4].include? 2 && nil.nil?
if [1,2,3,4].include?(2) && nil.nil?
The above tells me that && has higher precedence than method arguments so it logically ands 2 && nil.nil? which is true and passes that as an argument to include?.
However, there is this test:
if [1,2,3,4].include? 2 and nil.nil?
So this is telling me that method arguments and 'and' have the same precedence (or method args are higher than 'and') since it passed 2 to include? before it processed 'and'.
Note: I understand that && and and have different precedence. The question is not regarding this but regarding and or or vs the arguments to a ruby method.
I can't find documentation that affirms this. For instances, this doesn't mention method arguments at all: http://phrogz.net/programmingruby/language.html#table_18.4
Could anyone explain this behavior? Namely in that how does ruby know to pass values as arguments to a method vs. process operators?
