in thread What the heck does $|++; do?

...move finger across keyboard to 1

It is already there, you pressed 4 for the $ with your other hand, so your pinky is right above 1 ;-)

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    Ah, but you still have to let go of the Shift key, your left hand is still positioned low down on the keyboard from pressing the | key, and pressing two different keys is still slower than pressing the same key twice! Hah! >:->

    Of course, on a French keyboard, you don't press shift to get the $ but you have to shift to get the 1, so I'm not sure which would be "most efficient". This requires further dilligent study.
