Unary Operators

[Other Languages] 

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.

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

In addition to the obvious +, -, and Not operators, Delphi also offers:

^ Pointer
@ returns the address of a variable, function, procedure, or method; a pointer to its operand.
inc() Increment
dec() Decrement

The TYPE operator is also a unary operator and is valuated at compile time. The TYPE operator returns the size in bytes of the operand,
