I don't say ~> is bad, I just want every new grammar/op adding during perl5 evolved should keep consistent.

Too late. Tilde already has a full house of contextual overloads:

print ~'fred';; print ~12345;; 18446744073709539270 print ~( 2 != 2 );; 18446744073709551615 print ~~( '2' eq '2' );; 1 ~\'fred';; ╝│Τ═╩פ

One more is neither here nor there.


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?
