It is Fun With Perl... yeah!
I thought it was impossible to swap two variables without using
a third variable, but there it is. I forgot who posted this to the
Fun With Perl list, but I am eternally grateful to them.

You could make the case that that implicitly uses a third storage

the variables, but even if that does happen, you could design a computer that didn't do that.
I feel like a new xor!
