Not quite independently. Any numeric wheels must be at the back.

e.g. 'Aa00' will work, '00Aa' won't.

If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)

    Sure, anything with leading digits which isn't a proper number is dealt by atoi in numeric context, IIRC that's due to some C legacy.

    DB<109> @a=a..c => ("a", "b", "c") DB<110> $a[" 1x"] => "b"

    plz note: only with no warnings!
