in reply to TIMTOWTDI -- so long as it's not my way
one of the worst things that's ever happened to me was learning pascal as my first serious language. to this day, 90% of the time when i want to get the first element from an array, i automatically type $array. then i spend 3 minutes looking at the funky output, remember that i always screw up arrays, and go fix it. you'd think that after about 2 years of doing this i'd stop.
is there even any other language which uses array instead of array to access the first element?
