I think the table is not fully accurate in the Hash column.

NB: there is a new feature %Hash{SLICE} to return "Multiple pairs"

DB<49> @H{a..d}=1..4 DB<50> x %H{d,b} 0 'd' 1 4 2 'b' 3 2 DB<51> x @H{d,b} 0 4 1 2 DB<52>

One could argue that for reasons of symmetry there should be @Hash for a "Full list of values". But this collides with arrays, hence we have the operators values and keys
