Order of evaluation and parentheses

Incidentally, while FORTRAN does require the compiler to obey
parentheses grouping in determining order of evaluation, it is
worthwhile to note that FORTRAN also does not have a preprocessor
that often introduces `extra' parentheses.  One does not write

	#define max(a, b) ((a) > (b) ? (a) : (b))
