I'm exploring functions in the tutorial/TheMainLoop section of
Mathematica help but $SyntaxHandler doesn't seem to work.
I copied and executed the following code from pag. 694 of "The
Mathematica book" fourth edition:
>>$SyntaxHandler = (Print[StringForm["Error at char `1` in `2`", #2, #1]]; $Failed) &
then I wrote
>> 3 + /
>>Syntax::tsntxi: "3+/" is incomplete; more input is needed.
>>Syntax::sntxi: Incomplete expression; more input is needed.
but not my customized error string.
Does anyone understand why?
