|Product Version||6G60|| |
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|| |
|Summary||0000572: A blank table with parenthetical kind definitions next to column titles for non-numeric, non-text kinds won't compile|
|Description||Besides kinds of values, this also fails for (a thing), (an animal), (a person), (a container) and so on. The only tables for which this works are ones whose columns consist solely of numbers and texts, including indexed texts.|
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
A trait is a kind of value.
believer (a trait)
with 10 blank rows
There is a room.
|Additional Information||This is the report produced by Inform 7 (build 6G60) on its most recent run through:|
Problem. Brackets are only allowed in table column names when giving the kind of value which will be stored in the column. So 'poems (indexed text)' is legal, but not 'poems (chiefly lyrical)'.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious) Compiler rejects valid code|
