-->


Name:
--> - longrightarrow, usually delayed comparison
Synopsis:
--> -> /-->  
Examples:
 
[8 --> 6] --> 8 /--> cvx exec 6 3 arraystore
Description:
 
The symbol --> is used in the example sections of the NEST
documentation to indicate the transformation an operator
performs to its arguments. The SLI operator --> is defined
to just reproduce itself. This enables NEST to evaluate the
example sections as regular SLI code. As a result, the arguments
of the documented operator and its results are separated by
the literaal /-->. A parser for infix notation can then apply
the documented operator to the values on the left side of -->
and compare the results to the values on the right side of -->

Remarks:
 
The idea of --> is to contribute to a notation for test driven
programming and user documentation which keeps the syntactic
clutter at a minimum.
