I've found the symbol :=: in some Clarion code and I can't seem to figure out exactly what it does. The code was written by a previous developer many years ago, so I can't ask him. I also have not been able to find any results for "colon equals colon" in Google.

Here is an example of the code, where bufSlcdpaDtl is a file object:

lCCRecord Like(bufSlcdpaDtl),Pre(lCCRecord)

! ...other stuff...

lCCRecord :=: bufSlcdpaDtl

I'm wondering if it's something similar to ::= in Python or possibly the assignment operator :=.
