Hi swift-evolution,

I wanted to use ‘·’ as a dot-product operator, but it’s not currently defined as an operator character. (rdar://problem/23930008 <rdar://problem/23930008> suggested I come here for comment.)

Note that dot operator (⋅, U+22C5) is already available for operators and semantically appropriate, but Mac users can conveniently type option-shift-9 to get the middle dot which is a nice feature and consequently it’s more well-known.  FWIW, we have U+00B6 (¶) already defined as an operator, this would extend its range by one.
