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
+ += ~ ~=
+& +&= ~& ~&=
+| +|= ~| ~|=
+^ +^= ~^ ~^=
+< +<= ~< ~<=
+> +>= ~> ~>=
I wouldn't be surprised to see .
