Why this doesn't work

Anyway as a work around these work.

or for your example
echo "${*%${@:(-1):1}}"
echo "${*%${@:${#}:1}}"

That's the code I ended up using before I posted my question.

My first attempt was trying to do it via the string manipulation route since I thought it would work. Apparently not.

Thanks for the suggestion.
