Question: How not to assign a variable

Let say the procedure MyProc returns two variables as

A,B:= MyProc(…);

However, for programming purpose, I do not want to create an unused variable. Assuming one only needs B, not A, is there a way not to create and assign A?

For information, in Matlab, it is a commonly used technique. The syntax is

[~,B]= MyProc(…);

In Maple, the meaning of ~ is different, but I am looking for something similar.
