Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2740) Needs-discussion:5.5 Unary Prefix/Postfix operators

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2740?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=19488#action_19488 ] 

David Wheeler  commented on OFFICE-2740:

We don't need to explicitly state "it can be duplicated...such as "+"."  That text can be removed without changing the meaning, so let's remove it.  It's merely clarifying text.  The only reason that text was there was that some readers didn't realize that 1%% was perfectly legal, by intent (indeed, I know that both Excel and OO.o accept them).

So I agree with the proposal, let's remove that text.

> In the comments about the percentage(%) unary postfix operator, it says:
> Postfix unary operator % (divide by 100). Note that this is legal with expressions (e.g., [.B1]%), it can be duplicated (1%%), and it does not change the meaning of other operations such as "+".
> How is duplicating the operator (1%%) defined?
> Also, for the prefix operators (+,-), there is no mention of duplicating the operators, is this allowed, defined?
