Description tronicek 2009-01-25 21:54:33 UTC
When I create an ExpressionTree for 1 & (2 & (3 & 4)), i.e. (make is of type TreeMaker)

            BinaryTree b = make.Binary(Kind.AND,

and insert it into the source code, it is inserted WITHOUT parentheses, i.e. 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 is inserted.
Comment 1 Jan Lahoda 2009-02-02 11:24:05 UTC
Currently, the clients of TreeMaker are expected to create tree structure matching exactly the tree that would be
created by the parser for the desired output, including required make.Parenthesis. I agree that the behavior is not very
intuitive in the above case. It might be possible to improve the situation - this should be investigated. Does not
qualify as a defect IMO.
