    > although I think the correct term for () is not in fact brakcets but paranthesis

    your right in the fact that () are paranthesis. [] are brakets

    as for the order of operation's technigly it should be GEDMAS in witch the G stands for group/groupign symbols. In witch there are 4 main types

    ()
    []
    {}

    and

    >>> I expected it was the same way for at least all the Americans

    Well, it obviously isn't.

    >>> never heard it called operator precedence

    Many books would call it that. I had never heard it called order of operations.

    Agreeing with others, the concept is important, and I would expect engineers to get that right, the naming is something I would expect engineers to debate - <fx>looks around</fx> - oh look whats happening here.

    I guess I'm simply repeating what has already been said, but as long as the engineer knows the process the naming is almost irrelevant (in this case).
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    Braces are supposed to come before brackets, which are supposed to come before paranthesis, but some teachers do it bass-ackwards.
