More Unicode operators will be available via modules or defining

to make use of that and upload modules to do that. Common use will

I'm about halfway through reading Synopsis 3 and have a couple
Is there, should there be unicode synonyms for the feed operators? eg
<== is also ⇐ ⇐ LEFTWARDS DOUBLE ARROW
==> is also ⇒ ⇒ RIGHTWARDS DOUBLE ARROW
I don't see as obvious candidates for <<== and ==>>, maybe LEFTWARDS ,
RIGHTWARDS TWO HEADED ARROW ↞ and ↠. That's good in that the two
headed arrow looks like the angle brackets, but then the arrow shaft
isn't doubled, so it's more of a unicode synonym for -->>
In a different section, S03 says- "In particular, you can say things
like C<$array.'@'> and C<$fh.'='>" to get the prefix form on the
operator. Hasn't prefix:<=> gone away for reading from filehandles?
Correct. You'll see a prefix = is not listed at the top of S03 for
operators and their built-in use. I'll come up with something better
and check it in.
