[ integer->* ]

Method

* multiplies the value of the right parameter by the value of the left parameter and returns the resulting value. 

This symbol performs mathematical multiplication if both parameters contain decimal or integer values. The result will be a decimal if either parameter is a decimal value.

This symbol repeats a string if the left parameter is a string and the right parameter is an integer value. The return value is the string repeated the specified number of times.

Note for Lasso versions before Lasso 9: If the parameter on the right hand side of the symbol is a negative literal it should be surrounded by parentheses. For example, (4 * (-1)).
