/* Emulate full Array object support in browsers that doesn't provide full
support already.
  * This is not needed if your target audience are likely to be using
"modern" browsers. */

if(!'shift' in []) // alternatively if(typeof
Array.prototype.shift!='undefined') if you want more backwards
compatibility (eg. versions 4 and below)
     var i=0,
   return b

/* Now, the actual action */
var a=[14,8,7,5];

ie5.5+win, op and moz supports Array.shift natively - this method adds
support to ie5mac and ie5win. Use the alternate version for support of
nn2-4, ie3-4 and a few stray browsers.
