## (Operators) infix xx

multi sub infix:<xx>(, --> List)

Returns a list of `$a`

repeated and evaluated `$b`

times (`$b`

is coerced to Int). If `$b <= 0 `

, the empty list is returned.

The left-hand side is evaluated for each repetition, so

say [1, 2] xx 5;# OUTPUT: «([1 2] [1 2] [1 2] [1 2] [1 2])»

returns five distinct arrays (but with the same content each time), and

rand xx 3

returns three pseudo random numbers that are determined independently.

The right-hand side can be `*`

, in which case a lazy, infinite list is returned.
