Arrows and Arrow-Like Forms

Mathematica supports not only arbitrary arrow graphics, but also a selection of convenient arrow-like characters that automatically extend when appropriate. Each of these characters can also be used as an element of Mathematica syntax, representing a formal operator named after the character, so that complex arrow-based structures can easily be built up symbolically.
