Parenthesis are used for grouping expressions. Expression grouping is useful when multiple expressions are strung together in a line and the normal order of operations must be overridden.
The CueScript, operators are always interpreted from left to right. Parenthesis can be inserted into a command string to force different groupings of expressions to be evaluated in a different order.
The following examples illustrate how to use parenthesis to get different results. For these examples, assume x = 3 and y = 7.
|4 + 2 * 3||18|
|4 + (2 * 3)||10|
|Channel ‘x’ + ‘y’||Selects channel 3 and channel 7|
|Channel (‘x’ + ‘y’)||Selects channel 10|
