If Prime has a builtin facility for defining infix operators, I'd love to know about it.

It's quicker just typing function keywords! Well... yes and no. It's much faster if you use the "More" button in the Chars browser. In the above example, tapping "More" and then pressing ALPHA M jumps immediately to the "Math Operators" block, where ∩ and many other goodies can be found. No need to press Page Down repeatedly to get there. Ditto for the other Unicode blocks. Also, AFTER defining such a function, typing the name is usually NOT faster than using your defined function, because the latter is available in the Toolbox User Functions menu, usually in 3 keystrokes total, no matter what you named your function. For example, right now I can access my ∩ function by pressing Toolbox 2 1. That's 3 keystrokes, whereas INTERSECT() requires 13 if you type it out. <0ɸ0> Joe
