== signs

The symbol for "is equal to" in C/C++. For example, IF (PAYMENT==300) is an "if" statement in C/C++ that asks whether the contents of the variable PAYMENT is equal to 300. This symbol pair causes novices and even experienced programmers a huge amount of frustration because most other languages use a single "=" sign for equality comparison. See equals sign.
