@pbx I was just making a joke that you won't know what the code does unless you know the type of x. I don't know Python and when I saw `*` used on a string variable I was surprised. And Python claims to go for clear and explicit code.
I am against using one operator doing multiple things, specially if there is no difference in infix/prefix...
The same goes for `+` operator in many languages, used both for adding numbers and concatenating strings.
That's one of the reasons I like Raku.
