    Interesting link. What the prolific Peteris Krumins has dubbed the turtle operator I called Baby Cart in my recent golf article, following BooK's original suggestion.

    I guess whether @{[]} more closely resembles a turtle or a Baby Cart is a matter of personal taste. Maybe we'll end up with synonyms for this operator. I prefer BooK's Baby Cart because I find it more amusing for some reason, perhaps because this term is not in common usage, at least not in Australia, where we call it a pram.

      When I invented @{[]}, I neglected to give it a name. Maybe I should have asked Heidi (Larry Wall's daughter), like I did to come up with <=> as "spaceship", which has apparently stuck (having been even in the text of an error message for a while).

      The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.

        What about the "Saturn" operator looks very much like it in some images.
