+ — Addition operator

Arithmetic operators perform operations of change-sign (negate), do-no-change-sign, logical AND logical OR, add, subtract, multiply and divide. Note that a value or an expression may fall between two of these operators, either of which could take it as its left or right argument, as in

a + b * c.

In such cases three rules apply:

1. * and */* bind to their neighbors more strongly than + and −. Thus the above expression is taken as

a + (b * c)

with * taking b and c and then + taking a and b * c.

2. *+* and *−*
bind more strongly than &&, which in turn is stronger
than ||:

a && b - c || d

is taken as

(a && (b - c)) || d

3. When both operators bind equally strongly, the operations are done left to right:

a - b - c

is taken as

(a - b) - c

Parentheses may be used as above to force particular groupings.

**+**a (no rate restriction)

`a `**+** b (no rate restriction)

where the arguments *a* and *b* may be further expressions.

The arguments of + can be scalar values or k-rate one dimensional arrays (vectors), or any combination. If one of the arguments is an array, so is the value.

Here is an example of the + operator. It uses the file *adds.csd*.
