Operators must be defined on values of specific types. For instance,
+
is defined on numbers, but not on structures. Operators are
often defined on groups of types. For the purposes of Modula2, the
following definitions hold:

Integral types consist of
INTEGER
, CARDINAL
, and
their subranges.

Character types consist of
CHAR
and its subranges.

Floatingpoint types consist of
REAL
.

Pointer types consist of anything declared as
POINTER TO
type
.

Scalar types consist of all of the above.

Set types consist of
SET
and BITSET
types.

Boolean types consist of
BOOLEAN
.
The following operators are supported, and appear in order of
increasing precedence:
,

Function argument or array index separator.
:=

Assignment. The value of var
:=
value is
value.
<, >

Less than, greater than on integral, floatingpoint, or enumerated
types.
<=, >=

Less than or equal to, greater than or equal to
on integral, floatingpoint and enumerated types, or set inclusion on
set types. Same precedence as
<
.
=, <>, #

Equality and two ways of expressing inequality, valid on scalar types.
Same precedence as
<
. In GDB scripts, only <>
is
available for inequality, since #
conflicts with the script
comment character.
IN

Set membership. Defined on set types and the types of their members.
Same precedence as
<
.
OR

Boolean disjunction. Defined on boolean types.
AND, &

Boolean conjunction. Defined on boolean types.
@

The GDB "artificial array" operator (see section Expressions).
+, 

Addition and subtraction on integral and floatingpoint types, or union
and difference on set types.
*

Multiplication on integral and floatingpoint types, or set intersection
on set types.
/

Division on floatingpoint types, or symmetric set difference on set
types. Same precedence as
*
.
DIV, MOD

Integer division and remainder. Defined on integral types. Same
precedence as
*
.


Negative. Defined on
INTEGER
and REAL
data.
^

Pointer dereferencing. Defined on pointer types.
NOT

Boolean negation. Defined on boolean types. Same precedence as
^
.
.

RECORD
field selector. Defined on RECORD
data. Same
precedence as ^
.
[]

Array indexing. Defined on
ARRAY
data. Same precedence as ^
.
()

Procedure argument list. Defined on
PROCEDURE
objects. Same precedence
as ^
.
::, .

GDB and Modula2 scope operators.
Warning: Sets and their operations are not yet supported, so GDB
treats the use of the operator IN
, or the use of operators
+
, 
, *
, /
, =
, , <>
, #
,
<=
, and >=
on sets as an error.
