OPERATOR(7) Linux Programmer's Manual OPERATOR(7)

operator - C operator precedence and order of evaluation

This manual page lists C operators and their precedence in evaluation.

Operator Associativity Notes
() [] -> . ++ -- left to right [1]
! ~ ++ -- + - (type) * & sizeof right to left [2]
* / % left to right
+ - left to right
<< >> left to right
< <= > >= left to right
== != left to right
& left to right
^ left to right
| left to right
&& left to right
|| left to right
?: right to left
= += -= *= /= %= <<= >>= &= ^= |= right to left
, left to right

The following notes provide further information to the above table:

[1]
The ++ and -- operators at this precedence level are the postfix flavors of the operators.
[2]
The ++ and -- operators at this precedence level are the prefix flavors of the operators.
