The variable assignment operator in Pascal. Examples of usage include:

  • number1 := 765;
  • letter1 := 'Z';
  • money := 32.579;
  • sum := 5 + number1;

I find this amazingly annoying to type. What's wrong with a simple =?

dmd: I understand what you are saying, and I agree with it too. It's just that := is difficult to type after using = for so long in other languages. That's what I have a problem with.
