Well, the Wizard C compiler for the IBM PC prints a warning message:

Warning:  Possibly incorrect assignment

with that line.  If you want it to shut up, then use 
	if ((c = NL) != 0)
or whatever.

All C compilers are not created equal:  some compilers check to see if what
you typed made any sense at all.
