Assignment Operators in C++

What are the Assignment Operators in C++?


Assignment Operators that are used to assign the operator on the left the value on the right. The basic assigment operator is the "=" operator.

Compound Assignment Operators:

These operators are used modify the current value stored in a variable. Some of the compound assignment operators are +=, -=, *=, /=, %=, >>=, <<=, &=, ^=, |=.

Example :

#include <iostream.h>
int main( )
int x = 13;
int y = 6;
int z = 3;
x %= y;
z += y;
cout << "The current value of x::" << x << '\n' ;
cout << "The current value of y::" << z << '\n' ;
return 0;

Result :

The current value of x::1
The current value of y::9

In the above example the first the modulus is calculated with "x%=y", which is equivalent to "x=x%y". Same way instead of using "z=z+y" the compound assigment operator "+=" is used.
