Hi Mindstickians!

From the perspective of Compiler Theory, why would the javac compiler not accept a statement of the form x = x+++++y but accept x = x+++ ++y ?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Jeet!


    Java has the syntax x++ and ++y so the second one is interpreted as x++ + ++y so it is accepted. the first cannot be accepted using that rule.
