Title: Add unary operators, ++, += etc.
Submitted by: J3
Status: For Consideration
References:
Basic Functionality: Add the C-like operators: ++, +=, *=, etc., so that
one can write:
x(i,j,k,n) += value
instead of x(i,j,k,n) = x(i,j,k,n) + value
Rationale: Gives shorter, clearer code
Less error-prone
Standard in many other languages
Estimated Impact: Should be easy to implement?
Only affects current line, so no negative impacts on code logic
