in thread What operator prepends?

I also tend to create my strings from left to right, probably because that's how I tend to write. I add stuff to the end -- push vs unshift -- so a "prepend" operator is not something I would think to include in a language design.

Perhaps inaccurately, I don't think of .= the "append" operator; I think of it as an abbreviation for $string = $string . $more.
