( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think it is very hard to read and for something that nobody does very often. (It'd make Perl like PHP, but with non-alphanumeric operators...) Introducing at least 8 new operators just to save a few characters is not worth it for such a rare occasion.

||= and //= are not comparing operators like > and <. They aren't comparison operators. They're normal binary operators that happen to short circuit. Syntactically they work like +, so they deserve a mutating variant, just like the other binary operators:

|| ||= && &&= ^^ ^^= // //= + += ~ ~= - -= * *= / /= % %= +& +&= ~& ~&= +| +|= ~| ~|= +^ +^= ~^ ~^= +< +<= ~< ~<= +> +>= ~> ~>= x x=
I wouldn't be surprised to see . get a .=.
