|Summary||0000262: The manual suggests punctuation in understand text would be allowed|
|Description||Chapter 16.20 gives an example:|
The following command is a device to allow the tester to type a comment in to the transcript:
Understand "! [text]" as a mistake ("Noted.").
Using that line gives a compiler error:
Problem. You wrote 'Understand "! [text]" as a mistake ("Noted.")' : but 'understand' text cannot contain literal punctuation, or more specifically cannot contain any of these: . , ! ? : ; since they are already used in various ways by the parser, and would not correctly match here.
|Additional Information||The example could be changed to Understand "* [text]" ... which works and which is the de facto standard of commenting transcripts.|
