Just \ would work if we're happy with not allowing its use at the end of
a line. A little dodgy, syntactically, IMO. I've advocated "\\" in the
past, which by normal lexing rules would be unambiguous by the
longest-token lexing rule.
("/." is ambiguous, consider 3/.5.)

I'll vote for that also. It improves readability quite a bit.
But is there a better operator than "\"?
Shame "//" is taken. What about "/."

Maybe I haven't been pushing hard enough.

Subject: New Operator
Is it too late to propose an integer division
operator into the spec? I do quite a bit of WSH programming in both
VBScript an JScript and sometimes its a bit of an irritant during a
translation, it would be nice to see this operator "\" available in the
new ECMAScript instead of having to rely on more inefficient
result = 19 \ 4 '(result = 4)
