#185528 - Do some trial and error
Responding to: ???'s previous message
In C you have two distinct operators:
= assignment
== equality

'Most' languages follow the C operator conventions. However assemblers often have some historic baggage that means they accept EQ NE AND ...

Obviously these alphabetic operators need whitespace so that you can parse them safely. And humans may well be happier reading them.

So I would definitely do some experiments with your use of the 'assignment operator' in an arithmetic or logical expression. I suspect that it exists to keep some geriatric Basic users happy.

I strongly advise you to use something that is not ambiguous.

David.
