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 chopchop 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.

    Yeah, I like chop too. FYI, you don't have to repeat the substr: $a= substr($_,-1,1,"");
    Though this doesn't work in older versions of Perl.
