Do you have a bunch of blank lines at the end of your script? I've seen
that happen before. Could be the problem.

Subject: script editor error that drives me insane
Sometimes I see this error message, and just dismiss it as one of those
bizarre not-replicable bugs that we see in the Rev IDE. Usually the
error goes away after only adding or removing an empty line from the
script and hitting Apply again.
Today I'm editing a script, getting the error and and can't get the
darn error to go away! What is it? What should I look for in my code to
stop it? Hopefully it's something dumb I'm doing, and not a *severely
aggravating* script editor bug. The error message is:
! compiling at 12:06:14 PM
Type - Function: missing ')'
Object- browse [this is the card whose script I'm editing]
Line - local lCachedAuthorList [this is line 1 of the script]
Clicking the script button jumps to the first line in my script, which
is simply a script-local variable declaration.
I've seen this error many times in various different projects- it's
just a transient aspect of using script editor, it seems. What is going
on here? I've looked for all opening parens and verified they all match
closing parens. What's stranger, the script *does* seem to be getting
compiled, at least partially.
Thanks in advance anyone,
