One of the more common errors that can crop up is a missing semicolon; when you read code like that, it can be difficult to spot errors. That’s where this little piece of code will come in handy. The parse error alert lets you know that there’s a syntax error within your code. If you’re like me and sometimes use your brain too much, this alert will help you spot the error and get your code working again.
In this particular case, the error is with the “parse” command. It checks for syntax errors in your code. If there is no error it will print “parse error: syntax error” and stop.
If you use your brain too much, then you might not notice the error for a minute, but after that its a pretty clear “Oh crap, parse error” or worse. But if you get the message and do an edit-re-edit, it should go away as long as you dont leave the function un-edited.
The parse error is a very common one. It is caused by a syntax error in the code, and you can usually fix it by editing it in and making it correct. In this case, the function has a return statement that doesn’t look right.
It could be that the function is not returning at all. If so, it looks like you should be fixing the return statement. But if you dont, then you will leave your code unedited and the error will go away.
I wouldnt leave any code un-edited. To fix the parse error, you should take the first statement (the one with the return) and replace it with something that actually returns a value.
If you don’t fix the return statement, then when the parser executes the next instruction, it will try to parse the return statement into a function call, but will fail because it can’t find any syntax to parse.
So, if you dont fix the return statement, then your code will not work. However, if you fix the return statement and leave it as is, then you can fix the parse error.
The last thing we’re going to talk about here, which is the parse error, has to do with the way that a parser works. The problem is that the line that throws the syntax error is the last line in your code. This is because the line that throws the syntax error is the last line in your code.
This is why you see so many people use the code below, which is the most common way of fixing the parse error. This will allow you to fix the parse error, but you may not realize that you have done so. In other words, this code may work, but in reality you just fixed the parse error. It’s the same reason why the second fix below fixes the parse error, but does not fix the return statement.
