That is right, but that was not asked by loris. Granted, the code from gellyfish is more portable. But it is much less clear and easy to read.

Depends on what you need. loris asks for a solution. I give him a clear solution using module (that are written to be used, BTW).

Update : remove bad sentence

    Fletch just pointed out the caveats of your solution, no need to comment on it.
