Can anyone here tell me what the Java shortcut "+=" does?

As in:

int term = 1;
int sum = 0;

sum += term;




Thanks- I am preparing for my computer science final :)

it adds the operand on the right to the operand on the left and reassigns the result to the left.

in your example, its the same as

sum = sum + term;

sum += term; is short for:

sum = sum + term;


Edit: too slow :o
