the two "greater than" characters within an "If" statement?
« on: October 06, 2017, 10:29:35 am »
Is there any significance to the two "greater than" characters within an 'If" statement?  Sometimes they are there.  Sometimes they aren't.  They can be deleted.  Will the "If" still function properly if they aren't there?  Thanks.

Assuming you are referring to two consecutive greater than characters (">>"),  it is the WIL bitwise right shift operator.  See  :

Home->Windows Interface Language Reference->Things to Know->Operators   

in the Consolidated WIL Help file for a full list of WIL operators.

It was the "Show Tabs" option.
