Weird script behaviour (was libUrlDownloadToFile & urlProgress)

Figured it out. Later in the card script I set up a scroll control, and include this line in that setup script:

iphoneControlSet sScrollerId, "declerationRate", fast

The compiler doesn't like that line. If I comment it out or put "fast" in quotes, everything works fine.

My scroll control setup is taken from a demo stack I found on the runrev forums, and it works in that demo stack, and in mine. In my naivety and cluelessness (hell, I've been at this for 2-3 weeks in total, after many many years away from any form of programming or scripting) I assumed that the compile error I was getting against that line had something to do with the fact that I was running on a Mac - after all, on the iPhone the scroll control works fine with it included and I've seen other examples of scroll control scripts that include that line, apparently without problems.

So, sorry for bothering the list with my human error :) And thanks again for your interest.
