Increment & Decrement Operator

aimtocode.COM

Decrement Operator ?

Decrement operators are used to decrement the value of the variable by one. The decrement operator -- subtracts 1 to its operand,

Syntax:

    -- // decrement operator

Increment Operator ?

Increment operators are used to increase the value of the variable by one. The increment operator ++ adds 1 to its operand,

Syntax:

    ++ // increment operator

Both increment and decrement operator are used on single operand or variable, so it is called as unary operator.

Unary operators are having higher priority than the other operators it means unary operators are execute before other operators
