Well, you'd need to be able to know if "$q[1]" exists, for example,

if($q[1]){
$last=$q[1]; }
else {
$last=""; }

There are many ways to do this, and the above is just a simple way - i.e if $q[1] is of a value other than empty, then make $last the value of $q[1], otherwise, make $last and empty string.

Quite tired at the moment, so apologies if this is of less help than I intend it to be.

Take care!
