(For all Reginas up to and including 3.6):
In the one-liner REXX program:
/**/ say 'have found a \ and a : on same line!' copies(~,55)
Regina is issuing the error messages:
Error 35 running "D:\wrong.rex", line 1: Invalid expression
Error 35.1: Invalid expression detected at "\"
This is a very misleading error message ---of course, in this
context, it's not hard to figure out the real problem, but the
REXX statement could be a lot more complex.
Here's another example, but more bewildering:
/**/ say 'have found a / and a ÷ on same line!' copies(~,55)
--- same error, but this time, there's no backslash character
in the REXX statement. ____________ Gerard Schildberger
