Is Julia well-suited for string manipulation?

I don’t understand this sentence. Does this mean it needs or does not need to be implemented with @foo_char macro? I didn’t know there were such char macros, or is your point that there aren’t?

Would be breaking, since b'A' is currently parsed as b' * A'

Too bad. I never liked that Mathematica-ism anyway. But that ship is long gone.

This is one of my favorite things though:

julia> using ForwardDiff

julia> Base.adjoint(f::Function) = Base.Fix1(ForwardDiff.derivative, f)

julia> f(x) = x^2
f (generic function with 1 method)

julia> f'(1)

julia> f''(1)

julia> f'''(1)

type piracy schmiracy, Newton notation precedes Julia’s type system anyway
