It looks like an old and well-known (albeit somewhat obscure and tricky) problem in C (and C++): sometimes, you have to introduce sequence point (see for example and for more details) to make sure that all side-effects from previous evaluations are completed and that no-side effect from subsequent evaluations has been performed. If you don't do that, the behavior is undefined, which means that different C compilers may yield different results and still comply with the C standard; and I have actually observed such discrepancy of behaviors many years ago (some time in the last decade of last century) between two C compilers.

One of the typical ways to introduce a sequence point in such an expression is to add a comma. This is presumably the reason why your version with commas works as expected.

Update: fixed a couple of typos.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
