Fun with answer and files()

Hi friends,

yesterday I wanted to save a line of script and wrote:
...
put specialfolderpath("desktop") into tFolder
answer files(tFolder)
...
Instead of:
...
put specialfolderpath("desktop") into tFolder
put files(tFolder) into tFiles
answer tFiles
...

Before you try, think about what you would exspect and then try it!

At least I was heavily suprised when I did NOT see all files from my 
desktop listed in an answer dialog! :-)

Hint: 
Using brackets fixed it.


Best

Klaus
