    The increment takes place with "$year++"
      so does $year++ mean that year gets incremented by 1 ?? or 2 ?
        The ++ notation is common in many languages, like C, C++, and Java, and means "increment by one." Hence, C++ is C, but incremented by one. Pretty funny, huh? I tell you, I laugh every time I think about that.
        ++ means it increments by 1
        i dont know pearl but varible++ in C increments it by one
