The documentation should discuss operator associativity somewhere (presumably on the “Mathematical Operations and Elementary Functions” page). The Operator precedence table on that page is quite helpful, but it would be even better if it also listed the operator associativity within each precedence level, like this table does for C. If there’s a built-in function that gives the associativity for an operator (like `Base.operator_precedence`

does for precedence), then that would also be good to mention.

BTW, I don’t actually know the associativity of the various common operators, so if anyone happens to, but doesn’t want to take the time to change the documentation, then please feel free to let me know here .
