Ah well.  Fun's fun, but I'm going to stop playing with my food.  No
more followups to p5p.  Your bozo bit has been set.

Meanwhile, if you would like to learn a lesson from your exile, please
look back in the thread and notice what I wrote:

"An error value for an unsigned type, in a properly portable program
like Perl, would be ~(type)0 or (type)-1, not bare -1."

Your finding error values for *signed* types as rebuttals was therefore
amusingly irrelevant, and your inability to correct your own error is,
frankly, sad.
