Folling is unusual:

  $val = TRUE AND FALSE;  //Will always give TRUE !!
  var_dump($val);         // =  bool(false) 

using () will have the right effect 
  $val = (TRUE AND FALSE); 
  var_dump($val);         // = int(0)

Ups... a little typo above // bool(false) should be // bool(true)


$val = TRUE AND FALSE;  //Will always give TRUE !!
  var_dump($val);       // =  bool(true) 

using () or &  will have the right effect 
  $val = (TRUE AND FALSE); 
  var_dump($val);         // = int(0) 

  $val = TRUE & FALSE; 
  var_dump($val);         // = int(0)

From Adam Trachtenberg <adam@student.net>:

You should read this page in the manual about Operator
Precedence.

http://www.php.net/manual/language.operators.precedence.php

AND has a lower precedence than =, so $val = TRUE AND FALSE
is the same as
($val = TRUE) and FALSE.

Also, you want && (logical and) instead of & (bitwise and)
in your later
example. (Although, & does have an even tighter binding than
&&, so that
"works," too.)
