Kris,

I don't see anything wrong with that construction - provided there is only
one argument. It is often very convenient.

The only problem might be when one combines it with // where the
construction might lack clarity. What do you think the following will give?

f@x@y

f@x // y

f // x@y

Hi,

David Wagner emphasizes that he doesn't use the syntax
function@argument (p. 37n), no explanation. To me it seems very handy.
Any thoughts?

Thank you to Andrzej and others who recommended this excellent book.

Kris
