Subject: Possible Bug in FCGI_gets

While doing a C++ Builder NT port of libfcgi I found the follow
code that looks like a bug:

char *FCGI_gets(char *str)
    char *s;
    int c;
    for (s = str; (c = FCGI_getchar() != '\n');) {
        if(c == EOF) {
            if(s == str) 
                return NULL;
        } else
            *s++ = c;
    *s = 0;
    return str;
Shouldn't be:

     for (s = str; (c = FCGI_getchar()) != '\n';) 

in my book != has a higher precedence than =, which would
mean that 'c' would be set to true or false.  In which case
c would never be equal to EOF.
