[ASYNC-50] Add bang(!) to the names of channel ops with side effects Created: 16/Jan/14 Updated: 02/Sep/14 Resolved: 02/Sep/14
Some channel ops immediatelly change the given channel, thus they have side effects. This include async/map, filter<, remove<, mapcat<, pipe, split, reduce, onto-chan, etc. All 'mutating' basic channel operations have bang at the end of their name (<Unable to render embedded object: File (, >) not found., alt!, ...). If we want to be consistent with this, bang should be added to every channel function which has side effects.

Rich named these and there are no plans to change them.
