What the bloody hell is that supposed to DO?
Sorry - I thought it was obvious. I want all of the passed
parameters in one string, except the last passed parameter for
how ever many parameters there are.

What is "work"?
The last example works. I expected the rest to also work as
$x evaluates to 3 and $# evaluates to 3.
I got 3 different results, when I was expecting 1 result. I
want to understand how each is different, and WHY I got the
results I got.
