in reply to Shift versus Sanity

Wow, my mind is spinning. I started using $x=shift; $y=shift; because it allowed me similiar syntax to c (eg int a = argv[0]; // Or similar.. forgot c.) and the benefits of having optional parameters. I've more or less ignored @_ because it wasn't in english... Sweet. Nice to learn things every now and then... :)
