> The line 774 case only uses the calculated value once.  I'm avoiding the unnecessary store & load operations when it is set the value to a variable. I see it when I run  javap -c to view the bytecode.  It's purely an optimization for performance.   I do set it to the variable in the line 778 case because calculating the value twice is probably more expensive than once with the store & load operations.

I see.
