Star-dot operator in Kotlin

Are there plans for such functionality?

For example in Groovy I can write something like that:

["aaa", "bbb", "ccc"]*.length()

that returns

[3, 3, 3]

This functionality doesn't seem to be very useful. The syntax you mention has very little advantage over


arrayList(“aaa”, “bbb”, “ccc”).map {it.length()}

Star-dot seems to be useful for longer chains: events*.organizer*.email*.domain

instead of { it.organizer }.map { }.map { it.domain }

Yes, but you can say {}  and it will be more efficient and star-dot operator is not required..

But I still think it’s a bit overcomplicated… star-dot operator looks more clear
