: : How come the Postfix returns Count-1? Got this question from Operators 11; page 93. Thanks for the help.

: From my understanding, if you have
: y = 5;
: y = x++;

: The assignment of x to y is done first.
: Then x is incremented.

: so after:
: y = 5;
: y = x++;

: y would equal 5 and x would equal 6.

: For the correct values to be held, count (the value of x) must be incremented, but since it is postfix Count-1 must be return for y to be correct.

: Hope that makes sense.
