Explain operator precedence in PL/SQL.


Rules of Operator Precedence
  • Operator precedence determines the grouping of terms in an Expression.
  • When evaluating an expression containing multiple operators, highest precedence evaluated before those with lower precedence.
  • Precedence is the order in which runtime evaluates different operators in the same expression.
  • Oracle evaluates operators with equal precedence from left to right within an expression.
  • Multiplication operators have higher precedence than the addition operators.
  • Ex.
  • Here, x is 11, not 16 because of the operator ⚹ has higher precedence then +
  • So first 3 ⚹ 2 is done and then result added to 5.
  • Operators with the highest precedence appear at the top of the above table; those with the lowest precedence appear at the bottom.
