Bitten by a typo

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

Got caught by a silly typing mistake that caused a bit of head scratching until I tracked it down.

A common scenario is adding an element $y to an array $x

$x += $y

I’d typed

$x =+= $y

The function loaded but failed at run time.

Took a while to spot.
