Why preincrement operator is faster than postincrement?..

Answer / puneet nagpal

postincrement did not increment unless it find ; so it increments after the end of statement. while the preincrement operator increment before the end of statement. so preincrement operator is faster than postincrement operator.
ex- a=10;
a++;value incremented after the end of statement but
at this point value is 10.
a++;now the value is incremented to 11.
++a; preincrement incremented within the statement now
the value is 12.
