@ looks as good as 1 to me. We now have a three-way selection: bang, at, or one.

I hesitate to suggest this to the list since I'm still not convinced I've read and processed *all* the salient discussions, but it seems to me that "@" might be a viable alternative suffix character to "!" to mean linear-update. I think it looks sufficiently un-letter-like, it doesn't have much (any?) history of use within Scheme already, and the "at" semantics has a nice assonance with the concept of locality of reference, which is what linear update is all about anyway. take@ drop-right@ append@ append-reverse@ etc. [...] - -dan ------- End of forwarded message -------
