Hallo dear community,

I don't know whether this topic has been discussed ever since before.

I like those socalled "Oneliners" to solve this or that problem. It shows 
up, how elegant and effective the Mathematica language can be.

But to be honest: Isn't it a torture trying to understand the "how does it 
work" of a oneliner written by some else?

Is it useful to use //TreeForm to visualize the inner structure of a 
oneliner (where is the "inner beginning")

The vast majority of oneliners presented here lack on comments. Despite of 
the wonderful constructs, is this good programming style?

I'm looking forward to the next oneliner !

Oliver Friedrich
