Issue #14768 has been updated by shevegen (Robert A. Heiler).


Adding more documentation/references is always good IMO, so
+1 on the issue. Perhaps even adding a new page called
operators.html (or something like that) may be useful in
the long run.

There is an old SO question:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1426826/difference-between-and-and-in-ruby

Having this included in the official ruby docs would be
useful to newcomers, I think.

The Ruby documentation doesn't seem to cover `||` and `&&`.

The only references I could find are:

http://ruby-doc.org/core-2.5.1/doc/keywords_rdoc.html
> **and**   Short-circuit Boolean and with lower precedence than `&&`
> **or**   Short-circuit Boolean and with lower precedence than `||`

http://ruby-doc.org/core-2.5.1/doc/syntax/assignment_rdoc.html
> There are also `||=` and `&&=`. The former makes an assignment if ...

But there's no documentation for the operators themselves.
