Operators: Numericedit

Post Incrementedit

Use the post increment operator '++' to INCREASE the value of a numeric type variable/field by 1. An extra implicit cast is necessary to return the promoted numeric type value to the original numeric type value of the variable/field for the following types: byte, short, and char. If a variable/field is read as part of an expression the value is loaded prior to the increment.

Errors

  • If the variable/field is a non-numeric type.

Grammar

    long j = 1;  
    long k;      
    k = j++;     

    declare short i; store short 0 to i

    load from ishort 0; promote short 0: result int; add int 0 and int 1int 1; implicit cast int 1 to short 1; store short 1 to i

    declare long j; implicit cast int 1 to long 1long 1; store long 1 to j

    declare long k; store default long 0 to k

    load from jlong 1; store long 1 to k; add long 1 and long 1long 2; store long 2 to j

  • Post increment with the def type.

    def x = 1; 
    x++;       

    declare def x; implicit cast int 1 to defdef; store def to x

    load from xdef; implicit cast def to int 1; add int 1 and int 1int 2; implicit cast int 2 to def; store def to x

Post Decrementedit

Use the post decrement operator '--' to DECREASE the value of a numeric type variable/field by 1. An extra implicit cast is necessary to return the promoted numeric type value to the original numeric type value of the variable/field for the following types: byte, short, and char. If a variable/field is read as part of an expression the value is loaded prior to the decrement.

Errors

  • If the variable/field is a non-numeric type.

Pre Incrementedit

Use the pre increment operator '++' to INCREASE the value of a numeric type variable/field by 1.

If a variable/field is read as part of an expression the value is loaded after the increment.

Examples

  • Bitwise xor with different integer types.

    int i = 5 ^ 6;   
    long l = i ^ 5L; 

    declare int i; bitwise xor int 5 and int 6int 3; store int 3 in i

    declare long l load from int iint 4; promote int 3 and long 5: result long; implicit cast int 3 to long 3long 3; bitwise xor long 3 and long 5long 6; store long 6 to l

  • Bitwise xor with the def type.

    def x = 15 ^ 6; 
    def y = x ^ 5;  

    declare def x; bitwise xor int 15 and int 6int 9; implicit cast int 9 to defdef; store def in x

    declare def y; load from xdef; implicit cast def to int 9; bitwise xor int 9 and int 5int 12; implicit cast int 12 to defdef; store def to y

Bitwise Oredit

Use the bitwise or operator '|' to OR together each bit within two integer type values where if at least one bit is a 1 at the same index the resultant bit is 1 otherwise the resultant bit is 0.

Errors

  • If either of the values is a non-integer type.

Bits

The following table illustrates the resultant bit from the oring of two bits.

Examples

  • Bitwise or with different integer types.

    int i = 5 | 6;   
    long l = i | 8L; 

    declare int i; bitwise or int 5 and int 6int 7; store int 7 in i

    declare long l load from int iint 7; promote int 7 and long 8: result long; implicit cast int 7 to long 7long 7; bitwise or long 7 and long 8long 15; store long 15 to l

  • Bitwise or with the def type.

    def x = 5 ^ 6; 
    def y = x ^ 8; 

    declare def x; bitwise or int 5 and int 6int 7; implicit cast int 7 to defdef; store def in x

    declare def y; load from xdef; implicit cast def to int 7; bitwise or int 7 and int 8int 15; implicit cast int 15 to defdef; store def to y
