I tried to go back and paste my sample in as well and got an error. Since I took it from a running example this made me curious. I then discovered that the line interpreter is fussy about needing an unclosed block on the function declaration line and my word processor was helping out a bit too much by moving the next open block down. time-ampm: func [dt] [stuff] gives an error when pasted. time-ampm: func [dt] [ stuff] does not. I understand that this is due to the parser/linescanner presuming an unclosed block means more is coming and the linscanner in this instance does not get a hint that 'func wants another argument.
