Which would be considered more maintainable?
if (a == b) c = true; else c = false;
c = (a == b);
I've tried looking in Code Complete, but can't find an answer.
I think the first is more readable (you can literally read it out loud), which I also think makes it more maintainable. The second one certainly makes more sense and reduces code, but I'm not sure it's as maintainable for C# developers (I'd expect to see this idiom more in, for example, Python).
