6.3 Conversions

Previous Table of Contents "New C Standard" commentary

653 Several operators convert operand values from one type to another automatically.

654 This subclause specifies the result required from such an implicit conversion, as well as those that result from a cast operation (an explicit conversion).

655 The list in summarizes the conversions performed by most ordinary operators;

656 it is supplemented as required by the discussion of each operator in 6.5.

657 Conversion of an operand value to a compatible type causes no change to the value or the representation.

658 Forward references: cast operators (6.5.4).
