So I'm working on that targeting script I asked you about earlier. This is what I have:


t1 *
(Expand Variables; Echo Alias; Send to Script)

world.Note("Your first target is %1.")
world.Note("Your CURRENT target is @target.)

So I should be able to type "t1 gargoyle" and @target1 is set to gargoyle and I get a readout that says:


Your first target is gargoyle.
Your CURRENT target is Zoenad.

But when I type "t1 gargoyle" I get a Scripting Error:
Error number: 0
Event: Compile error
Raised by: World: Carrion Fields
[string "Alias: "]:3: unfinished string near '<eof>'
Called by: Immediate execution

What's vexing is I have t3, t4, and t5 set up the exact same way and they work fine. What am I doing wrong?

On line 3 (":3:")
"Your CURRENT target is @target.

is missing the closing quotation mark ("unfinished string").
