    logical-and-expr and inclusive-or-expr

The logical and operator converts its operands to type bool and returns a bool result. This built-in operator is a short-circuit operator, so if the left operand is false, the expression yields false without evaluating the right operand. Note that an overloaded operator and cannot be short-circuited and must evaluate both operands. The keyword and is interchangeable with the && token.

if (p != NULL and *p != 0)
