Certain aspects of Perl syntax make sense to my brain. Other constructs, for some reason, simply don't.
I've been using Perl for many years now, and I'm still
typing ~= (when of course I mean =~) about 25% of the time. The editor flags it as bad syntax right away, but why won't this symbol sink into my brain? Odd.
Whereas my fingers and eyes can instantly type or grok a hideous HoHoLoHo...L or a chain of -> -> -> method calls.
Funny, something about the regexp operator doesn't sink in for me.
Just an observation.
