Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Re: Well...
That is nice :) SAX APL has a "ply" operator like that:

(operator.integer) operand

applies operator integer-times to operand.

I often think of looking into Ruby, but then think, Python has broad support, so do that instead, but no, I like what I've heard of Ruby, but Python is widely used, but Ruby, but Python, but but but..

*overflow*

state indicator cleared

SAX APL has a very nice concept of functors, operators that spit out modified operators. Anything like that in Ruby?

New Perhaps an example would help clarify
In Ruby you can write methods that take methods as arguments and wrap them in different methods. But that is probably not what you are thinking - it is just a consequence of supporting closures and dynamic programming techniques.

Haskell has something closer to what you probably are thinking of. At least it is called a Functor there as well...

Cheers,
Ben
