One of the quantities entering into, or arising from, a computer operation. An operand may be an argument, a parameter, a result, or the location code for the next instruction.
an expression that provides a value for an operation. See also argument. operation: an expression that is part of the built-in computational repertoire of Icon and cast in the form of an operator and operands. Sometimes used in a broader sense to include function and procedure calls to distinguish expressions that perform computation from control structures.
In computer expressions operands are the objects. Operands are the objects that are manipulated and operators are the symbols that represent specific actions. For example, in the expression + x, x and are operands and + is an operator. All expressions have at least one operand.
anything that is manipulated or operated on by the computer (This includes information, variables, numbers, or an address in memory.)
In an expression, a term that participates in an arithmetic, class-qualified, concatenation, logical, or relational operation.
An expression that precedes or follows an operator. For example, in a + b, both and are operands.
a symbol or expression upon which an operation is performed
a value evaluated by an operator in a conditional expression
a variable, constant, literal, or function call that contributes a value to an expression
a variable or literal on either side of an operator
(n.) an expression that preceeds or succeeds an operator.
A constant or variable value that is manipulated in an expression or instruction.
An expression acted on by an operator. For example: z = a + b; and are both operands of the + operator.
In a query or logical expression, the items being operated on. In Personal Knowbase queries, the operands include keywords, a lack of keywords, being tagged, or having an attachment. For more information, see About Queries and Logical Operations.
The variables, constants, or literals that are used in an operation.
