Not exactly. Increase and decrease could refer to any amount whereas
increment and decrement indicate one unit. In other words:

increment = increase by one
decrement = decrease by one

While I agree with posters about the *use* of the words--I used them
as verbs in my computer classes--My Dictionary of Computing lists them
only as nouns.

Hmmm.... When we *say* increment and decrement, do we *mean* increase
and decrease?
