I'm new here, have some experience with Mathematica, currently running
version 5.1 under Windows XP Prof. I've written a reasonably large
piece of code (about 50 lines) in a single cell. It contains some
comments troughout and a few loops. If I run this piece of code the way
it was saved it all works fine.
But if I now simply try to add a line somewhere in the code, a simple
Print-statement e.g., I suddenly get the error
Syntax::bktmcp : Expression "(Log[s])^m" has no closing ")".
This expression (Log[s])^m is in the last part of the code and the line
I added is close to the beginning so they're relatively far apart. It
doesn't make any sense because even if I comment out the added line by
adding "(*" and "*)" around them (so that I have effectively only added
comment to the original code) the same error keeps coming up.
If I then reopen the original saved file and add a Print-statement
close to the end of the code it does run...
How could this have happened, is anybode familiar with this behaviour?
I wouldn't mind rewriting the code if the notebook somehow became
corrupt only if I knew for sure it wouldn't happen again...
Thanks in advance!
