New Statement(s) INCREMENT (/ DECREMENT)

This speaks for itself I hope…

INCREMENT operand1 [BY operand2]

Default increment is 1.

Its about the closest we can get to Java-like i++

I think it would make semantic sense to implement DECREMENT too even though its just a negative increment.

What benefit would that give you over

ADD operand2 TO operand1


No difference, just shorthand. Makes particular sense using the default:



Just an idea.

Why do you want to be so verbose with new statements. INCREMENT I is no advantage over ADD 1 TO I (11 vs 10 chars to code). If a shorthand for this is needed, it should be I++!
