in reply to 2 basic questions

Another TIMTOWTDI:

my $result = (split "", "ab")[(length(qq(ab))-1)]; print $result;

Please note: with subtraction ;-)

Update:

Two more...

$result = pop @{ [ split( "", "ab" ) ] }; print qq($result\n); $result = splice( @{ [ split( "", "ab" ) ] }, -1 ); print qq($result\n);

Perhaps this is the reason why some folks hate perl?
