What would be the best way to assign an operator to a variable?

What I'm trying to do is assign a '+' or '-' to a variable depending on the output of a random number.

Many thanks in advance.

Edit:Spellcheck...

Like this?

Local $var

If Random(1, 10) < 5 Then
    $var = "+"
Else
    $var = "-"
EndIf

If $var = "+" Then
    MsgBox(0, "", 1 + 1)
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", 1 - 1)
EndIf

You can't use a variable as an operator, so you'll have to use an If Then to check the variable and then change the operator used.

I see. I'm trying to cut down on repetition as much as possible in my code but it looks like I'm stuck here.

Thanks for answering my question >_<
