## SALIERI Language - Operator "*" (_TIMES)

** Type:**

_TIMES: int x int -> int

_TIMES: real x real -> real

** Call syntax:**

_TIMES(*x*,
*y*)

*x* *
*y*

** Description:**

The binary infix operator "*" realises arithmetic
multiplication on integers and reals;
there is a corresponding
predefined function *_TIMES*, such that
*a * b* and
*_TIMES(a,b)* are equivalent expressions.

In expressions, "*" binds stronger than "+" and "-",
but weeker than list element access (@) and
the length operator (#).

** Example:**

> 15*3

*Result= 45*

> 12.5*0.5

*Result= 6.25*

> 3.6*2

*Result= 7.2*
