AndAlso OrElse

Paul Vick
provides a

bit of history
about where the short circuiting logical
operators got their names. One of the projects I’m working on
currently is being written in VB.NET and I have to make a conscious
effort to regularly do a search through my code to replace
And and Or with AndAlso and
OrElse since it is rare (never?) that I don’t want the
short circuit to be taken if possible.
