I distantly recall C++-people fear the inventiveness of
programmers in (ab-?)using 'operator' ...

Does infix-notation carry any inherent superiority apart
from people being used to infix-expressions? And: is that
set of expressions not more or less small and limited to
what they have learned in school, at college, ...?

I am (so far) missing only infix "B^E". Would unary-prefix
"ln A" and "e^A" mostly be used with a bracketed argument
anyway? would these be some real improvement compared
to log(A) and exp(A) ...?

Perhaps some 'in_module M' could clean away "math:" clutter
in calculations ... but I am drifting off topic ...



That which was said, is not that which was spoken,
but that which was understood; and none of these
comes necessarily close to that which was meant.
