Style for function calls?
I'm fairly new to Mathematica and have a style question rather than a functionality question. 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. -- Erik Max Francis && max at alcyone.com && http://www.alcyone.com/max/ San Jose, CA, USA && 37 18 N 121 57 W && AIM, Y!M erikmaxfrancis To understand is to forgive, even oneself. -- Alexander Chase
