Given a language without any operator precedence, would you prefer
1) evaluation from the left to the right, like a sequence of identical
Operations in C [a - b + c = (a - b) + c]
2) evaluation from the right to the left, like in APL?
[a - b + c = a - (b + c)]
What are the reasons for your choice?
Thanks for your help.
