Perl Assignment Operators

PERLServer Side ProgrammingProgramming Scripts

Assume variable $a holds 10 and variable $b holds 20, then below are the assignment operators available in Perl and their usage −

Sr.No.Operator & Description
1=
Simple assignment operator, Assigns values from right side operands to left side operand
Example−$c = $a + $b will assigned value of $a + $b into $c
2+=
Add AND assignment operator, It adds right operand to the left operand and assign the result to left operand
Example−$c += $a is equivalent to $c = $c + $a.
3-=
Subtract AND assignment operator, It subtracts right operand from the left operand and assigns the result to left operand
Example−$c -= $a is equivalent to $c = $c - $a
4*=
Multiply AND assignment operator, It multiplies right operand with the left operand and assigns the result to left operand
Example−$c *= $a is equivalent to $c = $c * $a.
5/=
Divide AND assignment operator, It divides left operand with the right operand and assign the result to left operand
Example−$c /= $a is equivalent to $c = $c / $a
6%=
Modulus AND assignment operator, It takes modulus using two operands and assigns the result to left operand
Example−$c %= $a is equivalent to $c = $c % a
7**=
Exponent AND assignment operator, Performs exponential (power) calculation on operators and assign value to the left operand
Example−$c **= $a is equivalent to $c = $c ** $a
