Gentlemen, please...can we talk about me for a minute? Though entertaining, this byplay eats into my allotted fifteen minutes of fame. ;-) Besides, you really want something like: echo "knowledge of $(unset last; for ACRONYM in ${LinkedIn[*]}; do echo -n ${last:+,}$arg; last=$arg; done)." But I wasn't recruited to be a ebuild dev (Calchan would add, "yet") so I won't point that out. Thanks to all for the warm welcome! I promise to do my best to moderate the forums in the capricious, arbitrary and inscrutable--err, I mean, fair and balanced--manner to which we're all accustomed. -- Ron Gemeinhardt - timebandit(at)gentoo.org Forums staff, Gentoo Linux GnuPG FP: 7790 085F 6AC6 2F48 4F5E 97BD 700C F721 F680 641B
