What's that even supposed to *be*? You're assigning I=5 and then
checking whether the assignment actually worked?
If you intended it to be i==5 ? i : j then you really ought to
put some parentheses in it, so people like me who haven't memorized
the C precedence rules for decades won't have to dig up a manual to
figure out whether it's (i==5) ? i : j or i == (5 ? i : j).
