Unicode vs. Programming Languages


I really-really want to see a programming language, which allows using proper unicode symbols for operators.

I mean:

  • × instead of *****

  • → instead of ->

  • ← instead if <-

  • ≠ instrad of !=

  • ≤ and ≥ instead of <= and >=

This list can be continued more and more…

I perfectly understand the roots of current situation and I don’t ask to use ONLY unicode-symbols, but I ask language-manufacturers to allow this.
