SOLVED: Need help with compound assignment operators

Forums > Swift

Can someone please explain compound assignment operators, I'm a little confused on them. Please and thank you!


I assume you are talking about the compound assigment operators such as +=.

The operators are shortcuts for the operator and an assignment back to the variable.

For example x += 1 is the same as x = x + 1


Oh thank you!
