in reply to What operator prepends?

Really .= isn't an "append operator" it's just syntactic sugar for an assignment back to the same lvalue after using the concatenation operator, just like += is syntactic sugar for adding and assigning in one step. It's just that, unlike addition (or the other mathematical operators), concatenation isn't commutative.</pedant>

Not that it's really an answer as to why there's no prepend operator . . .

Chatterbox?
[LanX]: moritz: why ? family?
[LanX]: or other language?
[moritz]: LanX because of usability issues, and the lack of evolvement
[holli]: lol to the robust charme or to the data transfer?
[holli]: it works fine with Lynx though :)
[LanX]: it's easier to patch then to migrate to a PHP board, there are many semantics like linking , authorisation, templates ,...
[LanX]: I've only seen 30% of the semi professional documentation
[holli]: i was just thinking of the bare content.
[LanX]: Plenty of "templates" realised with CGI-HTML-function
[LanX]: well if you want you can fetch all XML and translate it to another board markup
