in reply to use feature 'postderef'; # Postfix Dereference Syntax is coming in 5.20

Exactly so:   this “fee-chur” is gratuitously incompatible.   A language truly does not need six different ways to write the same thing ... which are not “very obvious shortcuts” to the one (or so) “commonly already-accepted ways to do say it.”   If I stumble-upon some new bit of syntax and have to figure it out, I don’t want to discover that it’s just another way to say what has already been said.   I want it to be a feature.   I want it to let me do what has never been possible before ... and for that to be something that I actually (desperately) need to do.   Otherwise, what exactly have you done for me lately ... except to give me another test-case to write?

      :-D   Guilty as charged.
