Yes, and you can define infix operators with it too! Making your code
nice and easy to read, and avoiding all this Neanderthal RPN stuff. I
guess some people just like to do things the hard way?

Reminds me of the HP-41C
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP-41C

But still the Haskell people have for example even put more
into operators, than Prolog did. You can write things like:

   (+ 4)

Or

   x $ y z

Right? I guess the current lack of a concept of lambda
expressions in Prolog is the cause.
