Re: whats wrong with (( a = 8 , a > 4 && a -= 2 || a-- )) , bash: ((: a = 8 , a > 4 && a -= 2 || a-- : attempted assignment to non-variable (error token is "-= 2 || a-- ") |

*$ (( a = 2 , a > 1 && (a -= 2) || a-- )); declare -p adeclare -- a="-1"*
The result -1 is expected.
When a is 2 then 2> 1 is true AND a = (2-2 = 0) Which is False as 0
consider false, so it moves to the OR part.
