No. It is a fundamental computer operation...

Potato, potato, potato.

You're content with  $? >> 8 , well bully for you, System::Command uses it also, because I don't want to, I'm not a bash programmer, I don't want to do things the bash way, anymore than I want to sharpen my own knives

    I want to sharpen my own knives

    You equate deploying an entire module in order to avoid using a shift operation, with "sharpening your own knives".

    More like you want to use disposable plastic spoons.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      Bit shifting allergy, its why I program perl, not allergic to Spoons at all
