Msh Handles Data Types Differently

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if other language behave like this, but I thouhgt this was interesting.

lets say I make a varibale as a string

msh>$a = "3"
msh>$a + 4
msh>34  #it concatenates them, like two strings

but if I put a number first in the statemnet, it treats them both as integers

msh>$a = "3"
msh>4 + $a
msh>7  #this time it treated them both as integers

so if you want to add a bunch of strings as integers, you do it like this

msh>$a = "3"
msh>$b = "5"
msh>0 + $a + $b
