Assignment operators
From cppreference.com
Assignment operators are binary operators that modify the variable to their left using the value to their right.
Operator | Operator name | Example | Description | Equivalent of |
---|---|---|---|---|
= | basic assignment | a = b | a becomes equal to b | N/A |
+= | addition assignment | a += b | a becomes equal to the addition of a and b | a = a + b |
-= | subtraction assignment | a -= b | a becomes equal to the subtraction of b from a | a = a - b |
*= | multiplication assignment | a *= b | a becomes equal to the product of a and b | a = a * b |
/= | division assignment | a /= b | a becomes equal to the division of a by b | a = a / b |
%= | modulo assignment | a %= b | a becomes equal to the remainder of a divided by b | a = a % b |
&= | bitwise AND assignment | a &= b | a becomes equal to the bitwise AND of a and b | a = a & b |
|= | bitwise OR assignment | a |= b | a becomes equal to the bitwise OR of a and b | a = a | b |
^= | bitwise XOR assignment | a ^= b | a becomes equal to the bitwise XOR of a and b | a = a ^ b |
<<= | bitwise left shift assignment | a <<= b | a becomes equal to a left shifted by b | a = a << b |
>>= | bitwise right shift assignment | a >>= b | a becomes equal to a right shifted by b | a = a >> b |
