True, it might not be worth the bloat for something
not frequently used.
I'm just in a fuss because I read that gnat wants to
take chop() out of the core.
I like chop.
chop is my friend.
I don't want to have
to type $a = substr($_,-1); substr($_,-1) = ''
when what I want is $a = chop .
Besides, it's at least twice as fast every place I've tested
it. If you need to check a few thousand
credit cards a day, it makes a noticeable difference.
