Subtraction Assignment Operator (-=)

Subtracts the value of an expression from the value of a variable and assigns the result to the variable.

result -= expression


Any numeric variable.


Any numeric expression.

Using this operator is almost the same as specifying result = result - expression, except that result is only evaluated once.
