##//T2//##
Any numeric type.

{{fbdoc item="desc"}}
This operator multiplies and assigns a value to a variable. It is functionally equivalent to:
##//lhs// = //lhs// [[KeyPgOpMultiply|*]] //rhs//##

The right-hand side expression (##//rhs//##) will be converted to the left-hand side type (##//T1//##).

This operator can be overloaded for user-defined types as a member ##[[KeyPgOperator|Operator]]## using the appropriate syntax.

//Note: Similarly to the operator '=[>]' (assign), the alternative symbol '*=>' can be also used.//
