It's a fair cop, but society's to blame.
I appreciate your final no-hash sprintf approach,
but modifying temp values in a grep gives me
the screaming heebie-jeebies, you know what I mean?
I'd much rather use
map for that sort of thing.
But I can't argue with the fact
that it works.... And my Rule #0 is, ``Anything that
works is better than anything that doesn't.''
