When was grading student exercises (admittedly a long time ago) every so
often somebody would write (in Algol 68)
or even worse
Invariably they got points subtracted.
I would simply prefer
ret = lc;
except that in C there is no coercion to bool since there is no true
bool type, so one is left with the original "ret = lc != NULL", or
perhaps "ret = !!lc;" which is hopefully optimised by the compiler to
(besides: your expression is the negation of the original one)
