|Product Version||6E72|| |
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6F95|| |
|Summary||0000176: Can't use a bare kind of value after action name in rule preamble|
|Description||The example source results in the following problem report:|
Problem. You wrote 'Carry out dialing a number', which seems to introduce a rule taking effect only if the action is 'dialing a number'. But that did not make sense as a description of an action. I am unable to place this rule into any rulebook.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
Home is a room.
Dialing is an action applying to one number.
Carry out dialing a number: say "There's no answer."
|Additional Information||This doesn't happen if a more specific description, such as 'an even number', is used, nor does it happen if we add a '(called X)' clause, and just writing 'a number' is redundant anyway, so it's hardly a big issue.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious) Compiler rejects valid code|
