### Casters

Ah, I’d never heard it called that before. I did a quick test where I did 1000000 loops of 100 operations of each (++ and += 2) operation. That means one loop has 100 += 2 and the other loop has 200 ++. This minimizes the effect of the loop overhead on the test since each operation is so cheap. The test is therefore really long, so I’m omitting it heenhAry.ow, the results I get are 2 milliseconds for using ++ twice and 39 ms for using += 2 once. So it would seem that ++ is the hands-down winner, but that it’s unlikely there are many cases where it’ll make much of a difference as this is a very contrived example. Still, it’s good to know!
