Switch Case compile error

4 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I have read the docs, have tried a bunch of variations but am getting stuck with a "EndSelect with no matching Select" error at runtime.

Select 
    Case $debug = "true"
    Select 
        Case $CmdLine[1] = "/startcmp1" 
            _rotateDBG()
        
        Case $CmdLine[1] = "/startserver"
            _rotateDBG()
            
        Case Else ;$CmdLine[1] <> "/startcmp1" or $CmdLine[1] = "/startserver"
            $filehandle = FileOpen($debugFile, 1)       
                If $filehandle = -1 Then
                MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
                Exit
            FileWriteLine($filehandle, @CRLF & _NowTime() & " BEGIN DEBUG LOGGING" & @CRLF)
    EndSelect
EndSelect

I tried all sorts of things, but have been staring at this snippet so long I am going blind.

Please help! :whistle:

Thanks MHz. Like I said, blinded by looking at it too long :)

Are you using SciTE, and if not, why on Earth not?! :whistle:

SciTE presents brackets on the left side of screen for nesting fuctions, automaticaly indents, and by hitting Ctl-T you get Tidy, which finds many such mistakes before you compile. Even if you don't want to ultimately compile your script, if you compile in SciTE by F7 (Production) or Alt-F7 (Beta) you get a run through the interpreter's debugger, which catches (many, many, <sigh>, many) of my mistakes.
