/**
 * Represents a short ternary expression x ?: y, which is equal

 * <pre>
 * def truePart = x
 * def booleanPart = truePart as boolean
 * booleanPart? truePart : y
 * </pre>
 * Even if x is no atomic expression, x will be evaluated only 
 * once. Example:
 * <pre>
 * class Foo { 
 *   def index=0 
 *   def getX(){ index++; return index }
 * }
 * def foo = new Foo()
 * def result = foo.x ?: "false case" 
 * assert foo.index == 1
 * assert result == 1 
 * <pre>
