Oh you are talking about SymbolSwearing?

Took me a while, other cultures have less problems with the Seven_Dirty_Words.

But under the assumption that they shouldn't be used as identifiers in source code, they'd form excellent free replacements for punctuation (well at least the one-syllable ones).

That would prevent name space pollution!

In other words: say

  • "s#!t"╣ => $


  • "dollar" => dollar

    such that

  • "s#!t dollar" => $dollar

and so on.

so @{ $job->( "name" ) }

would be something like

BUT I'm not confident about the encoding, cause I'm no native swearer! :-(

Could you please help me?
