Sometimes I'd like to apply parameter expansion flags to a string or array literal in zsh. As an example use case, say that I want to split some comma-delimited string
$arglist on commas, but prepend something to the front. It would be nice to be able to do this:
Of course there are other ways to solve this particular problem, and I know that I can always assign to a parameter first and then apply the flags. But the question is: can I apply flags directly to a literal somehow?
