 Logical AND--binary                             (Logical)

     <lCondition1> .AND. <lCondition2>




     <lCondition1> and <lCondition2> are logical expressions to AND.


     The .AND. operator is a binary logical operator that executes a logical
     AND operation using the following modified Boolean rules:

     .  Returns true (.T.) if both <lCondition1> and <lCondition2>
        evaluate to true (.T.)

     .  Returns false (.F.) if either <lCondition1> and <lCondition2>
        evaluate to false (.F.)

     Warning!  In a departure from Summer '87 and other dialect behavior,
     CA-Clipper shortcuts the evaluation of .AND. operands.  This means that
     <lCondition1> and <lCondition2> are both evaluated only when
     <lCondition1> evaluates to TRUE (.T.).  If <lCondition1> evaluates to
     FALSE (.F.), the .AND. operation is FALSE (.F.) and <lCondition2> is
     therefore not evaluated.

     For backward compatibility, shortcutting can be suppressed by compiling
     with the /Z option.


     .  This example shows .AND. results using different operands:

        ? .T. .AND. .T.            // Result: .T.
        ? .T. .AND. .F.            // Result: .F.
        ? .F. .AND. .T.            // Result: .F.   (shortcut)
        ? .F. .AND. .F.            // Result: .F.   (shortcut)
