Expression Statement

An expression statement is any expression followed by a semicolon.

An expression statement is executed by evaluating the expression. All side effects of this evaluation are completed before the next statement is executed. Most expression statements are assignments or function calls.

A special case is the empty statement, consisting of only a semicolon. An empty statement does nothing, but it may be useful in situations where the ULP syntax expects a statement but your program does not need one.
