Crap. it appears under "Fat Comma", not Fat comma as the wiki search would have it. How to move?dot Tom 05:24, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Fat arrow redirecting here is kind of confusing, given that it is actually an arrow, not a comma. --Tgr (talk) 13:52, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

The term "fat comma" was invented in Algol-60[edit]

This article fails to acknowledge that term "fat comma" was coined for an Algol-60 feature. Actual parameters in a function call could be separated either by an actual comma: conj(1,2) or a "fat comma" constituting an explanatory comment about the subsequent argument: conj(1):imaginary part(2).
