quotes (Program Bug and Problems)

by john @, Saturday, February 09, 2013, 13:07 (2539 days ago)


When i type in the editor, print ¨Hello¨, and try to run it, i have the following error message, Syntax error on line 1 around column 4.

It seems that the program does not like my quotes. How to solve that?

My OS is linux mint

With kind regards,

OK!, USE = >>> PRINT "Hello"

NO USE = >>> print ¨Hello¨

The problem is that quotes come in the ANSI and UNICODE variety. If you have copied and pasted them from many word processors they get changed to the UNICODE variety. Re-type the quotes using the keyboard and you should be OK.
