Combination Assignment Operators
Gambas supports combination assignment operators (also called compound assignment operators ) in a similar manner to the C programming language. The combination assignment operators provide a more concise way of creating expressions by enabling calculations involving a variable to be performed without the variable being included in the right hand operand.
value += 3 ' value = value + 3 value /= 3 ' value = value / 3 value *= 3 ' value = value * 3
+= addition -= subtraction
- = multiplication
| &= | Concatenation | &\= | Concatenation (adding a path separator between the two strings if necessary)
