Inverted syntax with conditional expressions
In traditional syntax conditional expressions are usually shown before the action within a statement or code block:
IF raining=true THEN needumbrella=true
In inverted syntax, the action is listed before the conditional expression in the statement or code block:
needumbrella=true IF raining=true
Inverted syntax with assignment
In traditional syntax, assignments are usually expressed with the variable appearing before the expression:
a = 6
In inverted syntax, the expression appears before the variable:
6 = a
The task is to demonstrate support for inverted syntax forms within the language by showing both the traditional and inverted forms.
Though rarely, if ever, used in practice, user-defined class types can have inverted syntax with assignment.
It doesn’t work if the left operand is not of the type invertedAssign.
