Value of an Assignment Expression

In Java (and in C and C++) an assignment statement is an expression that has a value. Its value is the value assigned to the variable. So the following

(outString = fst.transform( inString )) != null

makes an assignment to outString and evaluates to true or false, depending on the value that was assigned.


(Java Review:) Will the transducer alter values in the actual input String object?
