What does the ? (question mark) do in PHP?
Or more to the point.
X = (!X ? 2 : X);
It's supposed to mean I think
if X is not true then use X, else if it is true then use 2
$first ? $second : $third
If the value of the first subexpression is TRUE (non-zero), then the second subexpression is evaluated, and that is the result of the conditional expression. Otherwise, the third subexpression is evaluated, and that is the value.
[php.net...] (find: ternary)
