The base-unicode-symbols package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This package defines new symbols for a number of functions and operators in the base package.

All symbols are documented with their actual definition and information regarding their Unicode code point. They should be completely interchangeable with their definitions.

For further Unicode goodness you can enable the UnicodeSyntax language extension [1]. This extension enables Unicode characters to be used to stand for certain ASCII character sequences, i.e. → instead of ->, ∀ instead of forall and many others.

Original idea by Péter Diviánszky.
