For negating all elements of an array: @negatives = -« @positives; > They should write them [metaoperators] only for infix operators. The above example is in S03, so that is not an option. > Because  applies only to infix operators, as I understand it. You understand it. I understand it. But how does the parser know the difference between @x = -<< @y; and @x = [+] @y; or even @x -= @y; which shows that the position of metaoperator is not the distinguishing factor.
