Comma  Lefttoright 
When parsing an expression, an operator which is listed on some row will be bound tighter (as if by parentheses) to its arguments than any operator that is listed on a row further below it.
Operators that are in the same cell (there may be several rows of operators listed in a cell) have the same precedence and are grouped in the given direction. For example, the expression a=b=c is parsed as a=(b=c), and not as (a=b)=c because of righttoleft associativity. Note that this does not affect the evaluation order of the subexpressions a, b, and c.
