in thread Alpha base-26 to base-10...

I may be mistaken, but I read it the way, that the pop delivers the scalar parameter for lc, (replace it with shift, the result is the same).

the basic is that you get a list of all values between a and the parameter, evaluated in scalar-context (I had this wrong at first :-), you get the length of the list, which is of course the decimal representation.
