Jens,

I see. So you want to search for `if (!(`

That is 668735 so:

16.5% of if statements are like `if (!expr)`

1.4% of if statements are like `if(!(expr))` (or about 10% of `if(!expr)` statements)

The numbers given by the author were originally referring

to this case, and, given those numbers, I'm not seeing this

as a frequent enough situation to warrant the extra syntax.

Got it. Yeah I agree with the ~1% you are seeing.

Note that

if (! (a && b) || c)

can't become

if ! (a && b || c)

yeah and neither can:

if (!(T) foo)

I checked that occurrences of `if(!` were dominated by `if(!expr)`. I lightly checked the same is true for `if(!(` and `if(!(expr))`, confident that its 80%+ at least.

> PS (`if(`=7495313 / `if(!`=45254716) in ACTCD19

These numbers feel swapped.

Yup. Typo, other way around.
