Coding Error

    I've been working an internship over the summer, and I ran into a very humorous coding error. Everyone at the office got a kick out of it, and I thought some forum members might laugh at it as well:


    So painful!

    It was not very funny fixing it though.

    Yeah, the computer is just too literal sometimes. Years ago, if you forgot a single period early on in a COBOL (COBOL statements ended with a period) you could generate hundreds of errors as the compiler struggled to realign itself with the code often to no avail.
