In most programming languages documentation where they talk about operators
+-*/=<> they also include
() as operators.
There are unary operators, multiplicative operators, additive operators, bit shifting operators, etc. etc.
I can find no terminology that separates parentheses operators from the rest of them. Calling them just parentheses operators doesn't seem right, because they can be used in very different contexts.
Specify casts, or type conversions.
a = (int)x;
Define order or operations.
x = (2+4)*8;
In the above examples. What is the correct terminology for each type of parentheses. I require this for documentation purposes.
