Took a few minutes to find what was causing this ...

One of our coders had a problem with getting a function to gen. It just sat there - seemingly doing nothing. A check on the file locks showed FUNCTDEF was locked but nothing else.

Turns out he'd missed quotes on a text string which had a dot in it (.txt).

$TEST = .sometext

Not sure whather this is a Unix system specific thing (as the . signifies a hidden file) or if it causes the same thing on other systems.

No big issue. Just thought it was a bit odd so I'd share it.

Cheers

Mike

Hi Mike

This doesn't happen on the version we're using - 5.5r345, so it's probably been fixed.

Could be - we're still on r323.

Just tested this on 5.5r317, and the bug is there as you describe.
