#186370 - A small positive or negative change
Responding to: Per Westermark's previous message
Per Westermark said:
It would take a bit of decrementing too, to get back to original position.


Hehe, yes, good point!!
I'll admit I've never applied the literal English angle to this, but rather this choice from the dictionary :

in·cre·ment (nkr-mnt, ng-)
n.
5. Mathematics A small positive or negative change in the value of a variable.

So Mathematics allows a decrement via a negative increment :)
