in reply to makeing refering faster ?

Consider not using $1 as an ordinary variable. It is a special variable used in regular expressions and once you start using regular expressions, the (bad) habit of (ab)using these special variables will turn around and bite you.

    He's not using $1 (one), he's using $l (lower case L). Granted, it looks very confusing. Confusing enough to discourage its use.
