Assigment 2 Q1b

Let me post the first message for this forum of 2010, eventually! He he

I'm struggling with the following question (problem set question 5 on page 363):
Should C's assigning operations (for example, +=) be included in other languages (that do not already have them)? Why or why not?

Any thoughts on this q would be appreciated.

  ,= ,-_-. =.
 ((_/)o o(\_))
  `-'(. .)`-'
