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.
