in thread my behavior with "NULL" declarations

I got the same thing when using a literal. So then its something about the shift that my doesn't like. It's weird that it's like that since that's not the piece being declared. Why would my care whether or not the condition is NULL since it only one of the other two parts that get's returned by the condition? At least I think...

This is my cool %SIG

    At compile-time, the expression is NULL. At run-time, it will do stuff, but compile-time doesn't know that yet.

    I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
