General Info: Unary Operator

An operation with only one operand (a single input). Common unary operators include + plus, - minus, and bitwise not. Some operators can function as both unary and binary operators. For example, + and - operators can serve as either.

Languages Focus: Unary Operators

What unary operators are supported in additoin to the standard plus, minus, and bitwise not.

Delphi Prism Unary Operators

The obvious Prism unary operators are +, -, and Not.

+ Plus
- Minus
Not Bitwise Not
Inc() Increment
Dec() Decrement

Syntax Example:
var i: Integer := 1;
Inc(i);
MessageBox.Show("" + i);  //Displays 2

Inc() and Dec()

Inc will increment an ordinal or float named variable by 1 or a value you specify. Dec will decrement a named variable by 1 or a value you specify.

Examples:

var i: Integer := 1;
Inc(i);  //Increment by 1 (default).
Inc(i, 3);  //Increment by 3.
Dec(i);     //Decrement by 1 (default).
Dec(i, 3);  //Decrement by 3.
  
//The following displays 3.65.
var i: Double := 1;
Inc(i, 2.65); //Increment by 2.65.

MessageBox.Show("" + i);
