    Default Question about (10)++%5 == 0

    Sorry I think I understand now.

    i++ and ++i will both change the value of i to i + 1

    i++ will evaluate i and then increment i
    ++i will increment i and then evaluate i

    Correct. What causes a lot of confusion is when people try
    int i = 5;
    i = i++;
    System.out.println(i);
    and are surprised when it displays 5 and not 6.
    Improving the world one idiot at a time!
