in reply to Thoughts on replacing -> with .

For those, like me, who are not habitual readers of p5p here is the discussion.

FWIW I think this is a really bad idea. If typing "->" is such hard work for someone they should become au fait with the macro system in their $EDITOR. There is no reason at all for that to affect the rest of us. As a perl user of almost 20 years now the use of the dot as the concatenation operator is so ingrained that I suspect it would be almost impossible to supplant. Let us hope that sense is seen and that this "feature" is parked indefinitely.
