How much time do you spend reading or editing code in a terminal session?

100% of time

descent programmer's font

I find terminus quite decent. And I don't think that requirement to use font that have tilde in the middle of the line in order to read the code is reasonable.

    I don't see why:

    ~ ~ ~ > is any less acceptable than = or $bool &= $mask;

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

      One is supposed to look like an arrow, the other one doesn't. It's actually a good demonstration. In your scenario, ~> would be much closer to the other operators using ~ than to the deref operator.

    I dont find not using the most intuitive (to me) option just because your font doesn't display it well to be reasonable either. ;-)
