For consistency, this should probably be "concatenation".

  Binary "." concatenates two strings.

Unless you reserve call "." the catenation operator and
call ".=" the *con*catenation operator. :-)

+--------------+
| concatenate |
+--------------+

Etymology​: ad. L. concatenat-us, pa. pple. of concatenare​: see next, and
-ate[2].

Chained together (obs.); linked together; concatenated. In Entom., etc. said
of rows of processes connected by ridges, or the like.

  * 1471 Ripley Comp. Alch. ii. v. in Ashm. (1652) 136 - The Elements be so
  concatenat.
  * 1678 Cudworth Intell. Syst. 652 - Thus are all the genuine attributes
  of the Deity..inseparably concatenate.
  * 1871 M. Cooke Fungi (1874) 131 - Sporidia..attached together in fours
  in a concatenate or beaded manner.

Hence con'catenateness, `the being linked together' (Bailey 1730-6).

+-----------+
| catenate |
+-----------+

Etymology​: f. L. catenat- ppl. stem of catenare (f. catena chain); see
-ate[3].

1 trans. To connect like the links of a chain, to link, to string together;
to form into a catena or series. Hence 'catenated ppl. a.

  * 1623 Cockeram, - Catennate, to chaine.
  * 1656 Blount Glossogr., - Catenate, to link, chain or tie.
  * 1794-6 E. Darwin Zoon. (1801) I. 112 - If this activity be catenated
  with the diurnal circle of actions.
  * A. 1876 J. H. Newman Hist. Sk. II. v. v. 477 - He fused those catenated
  passages into one homogeneous comment.
  * 1876 Maudsley Phys. Mind v. 308 - A transference of energy from one to
  another of the catenated cells.

2 fig. (humorously.) To bind as with a chain.

  * 178. Mock Ode in Boswell Johnson (1816) IV. 428 - This gigantic
  frame..catenated by thy charms, A captive in thy ambient arms.

In the POD for 5.005_03, there are 17 matches for /concatenat/i and only 1
match for /\bcatenat/i. As I said, *for consistency*, it is probably
preferable to refer to C<.> as the 'concatenation operator'.

It's rarer, but hardly a singleton.
