Why is it *wrong* to discard the values? I don't care | about the second value returned by INTERN. Why should I bother if it is | :INTERNAL :EXTERNAL or whatever? Because you write your function also for others who might value these additional values from `intern´. | I don't program on that scale. I've just started off. Additional values will never get in your way unless you look for them. What you do amounts to looking for them only to discard them.
