I've been working this script and up until this section everything has been fine. Not sure what is causing this error - I ran it through a couple different debuggers and they do not report errors. My IDE (Coda 2) does say their is a parsing error on line 2, but I don't see it. Anything?


Love the book. Way easier to use than anything else I've tried.
