I'm fairly new to Mathematica and have a style question rather than a
I'm aware with the operator forms for Postfix (//), Prefix (@), and
Infix (~), and I've found the // operator useful for piping long results
through the ...Form functions, or N, or the like, as a quick
afterthought while typing a lot of stuff.
What are the analogous situations where @ or ~ are used? Looking at
random notebooks around I've from time to time seen them used but there
doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason; it's not clear when
stylistically they'd be useful, as opposed to the // operator, which I
can see and use myself.
