Tilde "~" and 4GL

Hi All,

I just spent a good chuck of my time debugging my 4GL code and I thought
I would share my experience.

I was trying to write this line:

REPEAT i = 1 TO NUM-ENTRIES(cRepList, "~"):

When dealing with tildes as strings you have to use a double tilde. "~~"

In 4GL the tilde is a special character.

Some of you may already know this, but I thought I share anyway. :)
