Hi Garrett,

I sometimes see this too. I'm sure there must be a definitive cause of 
it, but I don't have a definitive fix for you - maybe someone else will. 
In the mean time...

You can try helping Rev understand your code by giving it hints with 
parentheses, like this (watch line wraps):

put (the text of varTempObject of card varTempCard of stack 
varTempStack) into varTempResult

-- or break the problem statement into a couple of lines:

get (the text of varTempObject of card varTempCard of stack varTempStack)
put it into varTempResult
