You actually cannot use pop instead of shift in the first line unless you rearrange the argument list order.
If there's no ordering dependencies between things (in this case &a and &i don't seem to depend on one being called before the others, and neither references $p) you can if you just reverse the order you pop rather than the argument order . . .
Update: D'oh, missed the @ARGV later on. Never mind me.
