I'm a bit with you, there. I can see why you might want to do $query .fetchrow($i) .selectcolumn($j) .say; rather than $query. fetchrow($i). selectcolumn($j). say; but surely $query. .fetchrow($i). .selectcolumn($j). .say; is the worst of both worlds? And it strikes me that the ability to put big, block comments between operator and operand is not a particularly useful one. -- "Of all things, good sense is the most fairly distributed: everyone thinks he is so well supplied with it that even those who are the hardest to satisfy in every other respect never desire more of it than they already have." -- Descartes, 1637 http://surreal.istic.org/
