I am creating a homeschool-targeted programming curriculum based on Kojo for young students. However, I am finding that using the equal sign as an assignment operator can lead to confusion for students in its difference to traditional mathematical usage. I would like to create a different assignment operator to avoid this confusion.
In particular, I don't really need to change the equal sign assignment operator - I just want to put in another operator that does the same thing. Perhaps something like the old Pascal-style ":=" assignment operator.
It seems like this shouldn't be too hard but I really don't trust my programming skills to be able to do this without potentially causing some major problems somewhere.
How easy would this be and how might I go about doing this?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks & Best Regards,
