The divisions of dividers...
A slash is a slash and nothing else, but it's being used for so many other purposes. As a former math-teacher I can not stand the abuse of that symbol that has so many meanings. And than, for that purpose we should use it, we seem to live in a 'decimal' world.
This is about *using* fractions in Perl and a call for Porters to start using Unicode... it isn't that hard!
