### Examples

### FreeBASIC

Equal to the possible of use:```
a = 4 = 2 ' a = false
b = c = f(5)
if x = 5 then
y=y-1
end if
```

### FreeBASIC

Even one example in what situations we can use the operation Equal to:```
x = y + 3
2 = f(2.28)
(j - 8) = 5.123
```

### FreeBASIC

Other pieces of example codes:do until i = 0 if i=10 then exit do else i=i-1 end if loop

if i=10 then exit do else i=i-1 end if

if i=16 then continue while end if

if i=5 then exit do end if

( i = 0)

x = 6
