Until today I thought that for example:
i += j;
is just a shortcut for:
i = i + j;
But what if we try this:
int i = 5;
long j = 8;
Then i = i + j; will not compile but i += j; will compile fine.
Does it mean that in fact i += j; is a shortcut for something like this i = (type of i) (i + j)?
I've tried googling for it but couldn't find anything relevant.
