[erlang-questions] guard clause oddity, maybe bug (in my brain)?
Fri Nov 20 15:03:43 CET 2015
I have a function:
walk ([I|Is], [Elt|_]=Ts) when (not is_tuple(Elt)) andalso ?IS_INDEX(I) ->
Element = index_to_element(I,Ts),
... snip ...
This function clause gets executed even though Elt is a tuple.
I have a break point within this function clause. I am looking at the
debugger at the break-point within the clause, and I can plainly see that
IS a tuple: within the debugger I can evaluate is_tuple(Elt) and it returns
I can evaluate (not is_tuple(Elt)) and correctly get FALSE.
So.... how can I be in this clause when the guard evaluates to false?
