|Summary||0002027: Empty understand causes hard hang at runtime.|
|Description||The attached source text causes Inform 7 to hang hard at the first attempt to examine the professor. Removing "/--" from the understand restores normal operation.|
Obviously, it is wrong to write this: the motivating bug was in a much more complicated use of understand. But really there needs to be a compile-time or runtime error rather than just a hard hang like this.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
"Understand Bug" by "Bart Massey"
The School for Gifted Kiddies is a room. Professor Zaphier is in School. Understand "Prof/--"
as Professor Zaphier.

|Effect||(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves|
