Description

Operator =+ and =- do not exist in Python. The code is valid but is unlikely doing what the developer wants to achieve.

Non-Compliant Code Examples

# =+ does not exists in Python, use n = n + 3
n =+ 3

# =- does not exists in Python, use n = n - 3
n =- 3

Compliant Code Examples

n = n + 3

n = n - 3

foo = -1
