Increment/Decrement operators in Python

Increment/Decrement operators in Python


Welcome to a quirky exploration of the rather mysterious realm where increment (++i and i++) and decrement (i– and –i) operators dwell! If you’ve stumbled upon this post, you’re probably entangled in the intriguing world of coding, specifically Python, and its preference for simplicity over complexity. Through a lighthearted yet earnest guide, we’ll demystify the incremental and decremental operators that other programming languages flaunt and how Python chooses to streamline these operations. Grab your digital shovel, and let’s dig into the subtleties of coding simplification!

Since this post exists, you might be fairly certain that there must be some difference between the increment operators (++ i and i ++) and decrement operators (i-and-i).

Apparently, Python doesn"t like to have multiple ways to do the same thing.

Alternatively, you can use:

count = 0

count += 1

count -= 1

In the end, the operators ++ and–are just “shortcuts " to + = 1 and-1 =.
