Ok, so infix:<...> isn't what I wish for either... Can you help me
understand Damian's example?
I see a lot of Perl magic here and I have no idea what any of it does.
What does the first star do? And the plus sign?
I tried to guess what the >= does by experimentation, but I can't make
heads or tails of it:

Also, I'm only now learning what ... does. I thought it was just the
"yada yada yada" operator, but now I see that it makes an object
called List(), which clearly is different from both Range() and
Btw, I just found the section in S09 covering multi-dimensional arrays
and the semicolon operator. I'll go read it now...
One unrelated question: Is there a way to ask an object what methods
it supports? That would make it easier for me to experiment. For
example, just now I have been looking for the methods supported by the
Range object (to see how I'd obtain the beginning and end points of a
range) and haven't found anything.
