Discussion of "pi'i"

Comment #1: Overloaded
Curtis W Franks (Mon Aug 4 05:18:19 2014)

Presumably, this operator is overloaded, right? For example, it is typical
integer multiplication for integers, scalar multiplication for vectors,
and pointwise multiplication for functions; correct? (Modulo
context/definitions)

And should matrix multiplication (of vectors or matrices as standard ly
described) be considered "pi'i"?

In any case, I think that we should have an entry-wise/componentwise
operator (de)convertion; that is, one which distributes an operator to each
term in a tuple (or which can go layers deeper) if valid. This idea is
rather like the dot operators in MatLab, "@@" in Mathematica, and relates
to vectorization.

It's a good idea to map words to less polysemous operators like in MatLab.

P.S. I wish you created more brivla rather than cmavo connectives.

I agree.

Re: P.S.
Unfortunately, that is not really how the language works; mekso operators
almost surely should be cmavo. There are a few cases for brivla being
useful (such as with .aigne), but those ideas are not really operators.
