Okay.  But be careful, because many operator have lower precedence than
<=.  If you try to do anything slightly out of the ordinary with your
assignments, then you will get unexpected results.

Some people have suggested using []= with no arguments as a redefinable
assignment operator.  The pickaxe book lists []= as having the highest
precedence, but this doesn't make sense, since this would mean 

  a[4] = 1 + 1

would not work as expected.  Is this a bug in the book?
