There's something wrong with your big block pointed to by 'titles. Perhaps
one of the titles only has one letter in it? After all, this statement:
uses the "second" letter of the strings, rather than the first. It
should really be:
You also don't need the ":" on 'x as it looks like you're switching on
strings only. You've got some extra space in your strings, so 'trim it off.
first trim x
But that's in the wrong place. The code that generates the block should
have trimmed it off in the first place and done it's job correctly.
> #"z" ]]
Plus, there's an awfully lot of space in the above line! Wouldn't just one
tab or four spaces do?
Also, why use 'x and 'y as names? Why not 'heading and 'file? Or something
else more descriptive?
I hope that helps!
Being right for a change...
