C# expression operators are fundamental tools for performing computations and evaluating conditions in code.
- Arithmetic operators (+, -, *, /, %) allow you to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and modulo operations on numeric values.
- Comparison operators (==, !=, <, >, <=, >=) are used to compare values and determine relationships, such as equality or order.
- Logical operators (&&, ||, !) evaluate boolean expressions and help combine conditions to make decisions or control program flow.
- The conditional operator (?:) allows for concise conditional expressions, making it easier to handle branching logic based on a condition.
- Assignment operators (=, +=, -=, etc.) assign values to variables or update them by performing an operation.
- Bitwise operators (&, |, ^, <<, >>) operate on individual bits of numeric values, enabling low-level manipulation and optimization.
- The null-coalescing operator (??) concisely handles null values, allowing for fallback or default values when encountering null references.
By understanding and utilizing these operators, you gain powerful tools to perform calculations, make decisions, and control the behavior of your C# programs.
