Variables

There are three types of variables that can be defined:

  1. Local variables
  2. Instance attributes
  3. Constants

These variables are defined using the let keyword:

let local_variable = 10
let @instance_attribute = 10
let Constant = 10

Constants start with a capital letter.

Variables can not be reassigned by default. To allow this, define a variable using let mut instead:

let mut number = 10

number = 5

Constants can never be reassigned, meaning the following is invalid:

let mut Number = 10

The type of a variable is inferred from the value that is assigned. However, it is possible to specify a custom type, as long as the value assigned is compatible with it:

let number: Integer = 01
