Could someone explain the following code snip-it as best they could. My real question and confusion lies within the "@param" and "@return". What, in laymans terms does the "@param token" and the "@return true..." mean. I can't seem to figure out what the @ represents. Obviously I am not a programmer...but am in the process of learning. Thanks in advance.
* Checks if the specified string is an operator or not.
* @param token
* @return true if specified string is an operator.
private static boolean isOperator(char ch)
String token = String.valueOf(ch);
return ("+".equals(token) ||
