    * garghhhh *

    On a Swedish keyboard, the ~ is AltGraph-akey+Space. That's so we can produce chars like ã with the ~ on top of the a (we don't use that in Swedish, but still).

    Right now it's just annoying when writing urls with home directories. With ~ as a Perl operator, I'll have to bind it to a macro if I want to remain sane...

    /J

    • Sorry to hear that. I can see how it will be painful.

      Maybe with the Perl 6 syntax warping features we'll both be able to:

      {
        use concatenator '.';
        ...
      }

      Out of curiosity, I would expect that =~ gives you grief today, too? Maybe Swedish Perl programmers use $_ more often than others. :)
