# Operators

XC=BASIC provides the following operators:

## Arithmetic Operators

`*`

(multiplication)`/`

(division)`MOD`

(modulo)`+`

(addition or string concatenation)`-`

(subtraction)

Operands for the arithmetic operators can be any numeric expressions, with the exception of `DECIMAL`

types that can only be operands for addition or subtraction.

The `+`

operator can also be used to concatenate strings. In this case both operands must be strings, otherwise a compile-time error is emitted.

## Relational Operators

`=`

(equal to)`<>`

(not equal to)`>`

(greater than)`>=`

(greater than or equal to)`<`

(less than)`<=`

(less than or equal to)

Operands for the relational operators can be any numeric expressions. A relational expression evaluates to `255`

when the comparison passes (TRUE), and `0`

when it fails (FALSE).

The relational operators `=`

and `<>`

can also be used to compare strings. In this case both operands must be strings, otherwise a compile-time error will be emitted.

Note

Comparing strings for `>`

, `>=`

, `<`

and `<=`

is not supported.

## Logical Operators

`AND`

`OR`

`XOR`

Logical operators can operate on all integral types (BYTE, INT, WORD, LONG and DECIMAL).

## Unary Operators

`@`

(address of)`-`

(negation)`NOT`

(logical reversion)
