SIMPOL Documentation

Chapter 3. Operators


This section provides a reference to the various operators that are built into the SIMPOL programming language. Most of the operators should appear fairly familiar, although there are some significant differences between a few of the ones common in most BASIC-language derivatives and those found in SIMPOL, although these differences will not surprise users of other languages such as C, Java, or Pascal. There are also a few operators that are specific to SIMPOL alone, as you will find below. This appendix is divided into five sections: Assignment Operators, Comparison Operators, Arithmetic Operators, Logical Operators, and Bitwise Operators. Object operators are the property operator and the member operator and are covered in detail in the Programming Guide.
