	No, it doesn't answer my question (question was about a statement
like "table[i++]=i++", proposed answer was that K&R page 50 says

Is the compiler free to evaluate PART of one expression, then PART of
another, then FINISH the first one, then FINISH the second one ?
In other words, are expressions to be evaluated indivisibly (but in any
