Items of note

Last Week’s Playground

We have one “Last Week’s Playground” submission from MightyAlex200.

Alex notes:

My submission is quite simple, but I hadn’t ever seen anything like this in any other language and I thought it was cool that Pony can do this.

This snippet demonstrates adding a method to primitives via trait subtyping that overloads the “not” operator to return a specific primitive.

This allows types to be easily declared as “opposites” of each other
