So does push(@a => $b);. Why are you using => instead of ,?

By the way, your code is equivalent to pipe('A', B); and not pipe(A, B).

    Why should not I? It is perfectly valid, and would seem to make visual sense, pipe one thing into an other. Arrows are pretty, but not DWIM, it is a shame.

    I've taken to using =>, having been inspired by Abigail-II's tendancy tward the fact comma. I put it in whenever the expressions on each side are somehow related.
