As a (potentially) interesting side note, while Raku doesn't provide implied multiplication, it _is_ one of the few programming languages that would let you implement something very similar yourself: sub infix:«\c[INVISIBLE TIMES]» { $^a × $^b } This would let you write `say 60÷5(7−5)` (with an invisible character between the `5` and the `(` ) and get the expected result. Doing so would, of course, be a very bad idea. But still, you _could_.
