Hi Daniel,

Well, there is a very good reason for using the approach I have: we all have
done the error of forgetting the second = sign.

In my case, the compiler will complain and we fix the error right away.

In your case, nobody is complaining but we introduced a nasty, potentially
hard to debug error. Thus, I very much like to keep my version just to be on
the safe side.

Note, there was even a backdoor I have seen where the missing 2nd equal sign
introduced a privilege escalation.

Therefore, my standard coding practice is to have a fixed value on the left
side and the variable on the right side of any comparison.

Right, good catch, I have to add a catch for negative error here.

Ok, if this is desired, fine with me.

Will do.
