  • I really like the reduction operators. The concept is something I've been missing from Perl 5 as well as any other language I've used for more than fun and the syntax seems a quite natural, too.

    However, what's supposed to happen if the operator is not associative? I suppose it evaluates left to right? Is there a way to make it evaluate right to left or does that require something like [-] reverse(...)?
