in reply to Conditional Interpretation?
One of the things we did was to use a constant (or a bitwise and set of constants) inside a right-side if conditional for whether we had debug statements work. The compiler optimizes away the entire line at run-time if the constant conditional is false.
do_something() if ($CONSTANT); do_something_else() if ($CONSTANT & $ANOTHER_CONSTANT);
Is this what you're looking for?
