either that or it's the getc, which may pose problems, apparently not a good idea to rely on it in perl
Indeed, I think in Perl, and I was not aware that Perl even had a getc function. With a name like that I'd lay odds ten to one that it just wraps the function of the same name in the C library, and if so, I don't want anything to do with it. Just thinking about the prospect makes me want to take a shower (as does looking at that code -- somebody apparently took six lines of nice clear legible Perl code and ran it through an extreme verbosification cycle).
