function table:continue() not allowed

Post by Bugala »

On Windows 10 Windows IDE Hollywood 8:

Code: Select all

test = {}

Function test:continue()
EndFunction
says "line 3: variable expected!"


Bug or a feature?

Feature. "Continue" is a reserved keyword and cannot be used as a variable.

not very handy when cannot use even in a context like that, after all, Continue can be very useful function name many times.

Simple change to "DoContinue" e.g. That's the way I handle those cases.
Currently using: Hollywood 8 with Visual Studio Code and hw4vsc
