I believe he meant it was _like_ that statement.  The code he presented
obviously wasn't valid C -- it lacked semicolons where they would be
needed and while,


is not technically bad code, it has no (meaningful, tangible) effect.
This interpretation of what he said is lent a bit of credibility because
he did, after all, say, that, "it works like this," rather than, "it is
the same as this."

Well, it's not exactly the same, but

  (1 ? printf("true\n") : printf("false\n"));

is perfectly valid code.  Not that I'd recommend ever doing that.
