Maybe .:: has even more detractors, I dunno. All I know is that I
./ and I'm trying to come up with an alternative. What say you
many dots in .::? Surely ./ isn't as good as it gets...
I'm not fond of .:: because I don't think it's sufficiently visually
distinct from .:.
I don't have a better suggestion...but that's mostly because I
dislike this entire concept of secondary sigils. I already get to
have the "Perl is line noise!" conversation _way_ too often...I don't
feel that we need to give the trolls more ammunition. For that
matter, I'm a Perl zealot and /I/ think they're ugly and obfuscatory.
For what it's all worth, I suppose.
